I know there are many posts about filters and patterns here, and they work for the most part.
But I was testing something today and tried the simplest folder include as described in the guide:
+foo/bar/* +foo/ -*
In my case this was:
+C__Users_link/Public/* +C__Users_link/ -*
C__Users_link is in the root of the repository and I needed to include single sub-folder in the backup.
It did not work.
Debug log contradicts what documentation states - "If a match with an include pattern is found, the path is said to be included without further comparisons."
INFO SNAPSHOT_FILTER Loaded 3 include/exclude pattern(s) TRACE SNAPSHOT_PATTERN Pattern: +C__Users_link/Public/* TRACE SNAPSHOT_PATTERN Pattern: +C__Users_link TRACE SNAPSHOT_PATTERN Pattern: -* DEBUG LIST_ENTRIES Listing DEBUG PATTERN_INCLUDE C__Users_link is included by pattern +C__Users_link DEBUG PATTERN_EXCLUDE C__Users_link/ is excluded by pattern -*
Am I missing something obvious here?
