Hi guys,

i've seen many many many files in a lot of "Cookie"-Folders.......
The structure is:

P:\shares\profile\{username}\appdata\roaming\bla\bla\Cookies\bla\bla\......

How can I exclude these "Cookies"-Folder from all Users ? I don't want to backup them.....it's useless.
Note: it shoud not matter where these Cookies-folder are.....i don't want them.....

Would this be the right statement in inclexcl.txt:

exclude.dir "*:\shares\profile\...\...\cookies"

Thank you in advance !
Hubert

You can simplify this a lot if you want to exclude ALL directories named "cookies":
Code:
exclude.dir *:\...\cookies
If you only want to exclude "cookies" if under ":\shares\profiles", then you would do:
exclude.dir "*:\shares\profile\...\cookies"

The \...\ stands for one or many subdirectories, so you don't need to count how many subdirectories deep what you want to exclude is.
