Re: Using subfile backup for specific filetypes ?
TSm compares each filename on the drive to the dsm.opt file, going from the
As soon as it finds a match, it takes action accordingly for that file and
does no further checking.
So, I believe your syntax is correct.
- backup up only files in the MyFolder directory and its subdirectories on
the D: drive, nothing else
- backup any files ending in .msx using subfile
- backup any OTHER files not using subfile
1) You must also turn on SUBFILE on the server side (SET SUBFILE CLIENT)
2) The FIRST backup you do this way will still push all the data, since your
first subfile backup has to create a BASE file.
Starting the SECOND backup you do this way, you should see less data because
you will only get DELTA files created.

Subject: Using subfile backup for specific filetypes ?
I have a question about the client dsm.opt file...
If I want to make backup of a directory-structure (all files) in a "normal"
manner, I just use the INCLUDE statement. But what is I want all files
backup up using incremental - but files with the extension .MSX in that
folder structure should be backed up using subfile option ? What would this
look like in the dsm.opt file ?
For the normal backup I have:
But in this structure there might be
etc.. These files are quite large and need to be backed up over a line with
limited bandwidth, and that is why I want to use the subfile option...Would
the dsm.opt then look like this:
- or are they listed in the wrong order ??
