Creating Exclusions to Filters

After setting the filters, you can provide exceptions to the filters. Library and list folders added to the exception list will be included in the backup operations.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > SharePoint Server > Documents.
  2. Right-click the subclient, and then click Properties.

    The Subclient Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the Filters tab, in the Except for these files/folders box, click Browse.

    The Browse dialog box appears.

  4. Select the sites for which you want to create exception for exclusion, and then click Add. Click Close.
  5. Click OK.

Note: It is good to perform a full backup operation after changing exceptions of filters. Incremental backups will only protect data that has been modified since the last backup. Previously filtered files, will not be protected unless they have been modified since that last backup job.
