I’m trying to configure duplicacy in order to backup a windows network share from a linux Ubuntu.
My share is named /media/driveg.
Since I don’t want to see duplicacy files in the share, I’m backing up /media given that folder contains only the driveg folder.
My goal is to set up the filters to backup only some folders of /media/driveg an since it’s a share polluted with Windows and Mac temporary files, I want to exclude a bunch of files.
My Filter file looks like this:
# exclude .* files or folders -.* # exclude *.tmp files -*.tmp # exclude *.lnk files -*.lnk # exclude desktop.ini files -desktop.ini # exclude Thumbs.db files -Thumbs.db # Folders +driveg/FolderA/ +driveg/FolderB/ +driveg/FolderC/ +driveg/FolderD/ -driveg/*
- Files that start with dots are not excluded. Reason in the dry run: because +driveg/FolderA/ allows it
- Same for almost all files
- I want to backup FolderA to FolderD and exclude anything else but “-driveg/*” in the end blocks everything
Anyone know how I can exclude files and folders no matter where they are ? And only include my 4 folders ?
Thank you very much.
