Filtering problem

Post by Istvan »

Hello,

I am trying to filter folders but It seems it doesn't work. I need case-insensitive filters, so that BAK and Bak would be the same etc.

I have the following exclude entry in my Bakup4All filter [words are in Hungarian but it doesn't really matter I suppose]:

Folder name = '*\#recycle\*|*\NE HASZNÁLD*\*|*\BIZTONSÁGI MÁSOLAT*\*|*\temp\*|*\tmp\*'

but the system did back up a subfolder called something like:

\whatever\Biztonsági másolatok\subfolders...

which I wanted to match and exclude with the third filter entry (except that the folder name is not allcaps and there is a wild card at the end of the filter name following the letter T, or so I would hope.)

Hi,

Because of the particular characters (with accents), the lowercase and uppercase are considered different.
Please use the exact case in filter: BIZTONSÁGI MÁSOLAT

Thanks. So if I understand this correctly, using something like
*\biztons*\*
i.e. omitting the local characters, would yield a case insensitive match for anything like Biztons.. or bIzToNs... etc?

Hi,

Yes, that is correct. That filter will work just fine.
