Running commands for backup group

Hello

Is there possibility to run backup of a group, executing a command pre- and post-backup, as in case of a single backup job?

Filename case change handling

Say I have mirror backup with enabled option of deleting from backup files that are not present in the source.
I change only case of file name (fe from thisfile.txt to THISFILE.txt).

If I backup all Documents and Settings directory (WindowsXP), will some_directory be excluded for all configured users, or just the user a backup operation runs as?
