Content Filters for the Windows File System Agent

Use Filters to control specific types of files that are included or excluded from backup operations. You can also use filters to exclude certain system-related files and database application files that consistently fail during a backup operation and are not integral to the operation of the system or application.

Filters enable you to include or exclude files from backups through several key features:

Files and Folders Filtered Automatically from Backups

The following snapshot directories are excluded from the backup operation automatically.

  • \\*\*\**\~snapshot\***

  • \\*\*\**\.snapshot\***

  • \\*\*\**\~SNAPSHT\***

Add the <BIF,-Snapshots> to subclient filter to include the snapshot directories in the backup operation.
