File selection

Postby tj924 » Mon Mar 26, 2007 12:37 pm

Any way of selecting only certain file types (eg *.jpg) to include in a backup? Customer has around 11GB of jpg files they don't need backed up daily but would like to back up weekly. I can use a 2nd job for the weekly backup but can't find a way to just select something line e:\*.jpg.

I testing adding a wildcard selection (*.JPG) manually to the BKS file, but got the following message in the backup assist log:

Checking files and directories to backup
-- Warning: the following files and/or directories could not be found, and have been omitted from the backup:
E:\*.JPG

So, I guess that's not the way to go & I'm expecting this is not achievable.
