Not ignoring my onedrive directory

I have filters set to exclude my other synced cloud folders (Google Backup & Sync, OneDrive, MEGA) and for some reason Duplicati cannot respect the OneDrive exclude filter. Every backup it looks in there and attempts to back it up but fails with a warning:

[Warning-Duplicati.Library.Main.Operation.Backup.FileBlockProcessor.FileEntry-PathProcessingFailed]: Failed to process path: C:\\Users\\ant72\\OneDrive\\sample.txt

The filters I am currently using:


Before, Duplicati had the same warning for NTUSER.DAT files but when adding it to the exclude filter it respects the filter and stops attempting to back it up.

So, why does it respect only one of all the filters?

Does below help? Filters article explains how a folder name should end with a backslash on Windows.

Thanks, I’ve trimmed the trailing backslashes down to one and the warnings no longer appear.
