Exclude empty folders

Post by LuP »

Hello,

I'd like to backup all .ini files from the "Document and Setting" folder.

So it's simple to use file name filer "*.ini".

But such simple filer will add all folders from "Document and Setting", even if they are empty (resp.: "empty folder" here means: files that meet [all] filter criterion cause that no files are to be added, thus folder "seems" empty).

So how to define the filter which would exclude empty folders? Any way to achieve this?

TIA.

Hi,

You cannot avoid backing up empty folders in this case.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html

OK, thanks for the answer.

Do you think this option could be implemented in the future? Shall I add this to the wish list?

Best regards,

LuP
