Hi,
I'm currently evaluating Backup Magic and I can't seem to be able to do the following with it.

I have a projects directory containing source code and I use CVS for version control. I want to backup *.pas;*.dfm files from all of the directories in the projects folder, EXCEPT in the CVS directories where I want to backup * files.

I've tried creating two groups, 1st group:
copy from: d:\projects
copy to: D:\backups\projects
Include Subfolders: Yes
Include folders mask: *
Exclude folders mask: CVS
Include files mask: *.pas;*.dpr
Exclude files mask:
Incremental Add/Update

Group 2:
copy from: d:\projects
copy to: D:\backups\projects
Include Subfolders: Yes
Include folders mask: CVS
Exclude folders mask:
Include files mask: *
Exclude files mask:
Incremental Add/Update

However, the CVS directories do not get copied across.

So, can this type of backup be done??

thanks
Mark

Any time-frame when a fix/new version will be available?

Actually your original settings should work but seems there is a bug in program code that prevents recursive inclusion of specified folders. I'll investigate this.

The Include Sub-Folders option does, however, work with the Exclude Folders list.

My projects folder is something like:
d:\projects
d:\projects\fontedit
d:\projects\fontedit\CVS
d:\projects\tests\testEdit
d:\projects\tests\testEdit\CVS
etc etc.

ie more than 10 projects each with a CVS directory of their own.
I've done a few more tests and it appears that if you have the following simple layout:
d:\projects
d:\projects\CVS

The backup profile I originally specified works, however, if there are anymore sub-directories with CVS in them, then the second Group specified (the one to read the CVS directories) will only work for the top-level CVS directory. ie with a directory layout of:
d:\projects
d:\projects\CVS
d:\projects\test
d:\projects\test\CVS

Only the following folders are backed up:
d:\projects
d:\projects\CVS
d:\projects\test

I also did a test with a single group and to include CVS directories, and again, only the top-level CVS directory gets copied.

By the looks of it the include Sub-Folders option doesn't work for include folders.

cheers

In your Group 2 just change the source folder to:

d:\projects\CVS

and include folders mask to:
