Environment variable expansion in filters

Post by Xyzzy »

Hello,

Say I have defined a filter to exclude %USERPROFILE%^\some_directory.
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?

Hi,

That filters will exclude the directory for the user logged on.
