Add Disk Filter

Use this dialog box to add disk filters for a backup set or subclient. Disk filters are the criteria to exclude disks from a backup. Use the following options to set the criteria:

Virtual Device Node

Select this option to exclude disks associated with a specific device node from the backup.


Select the IDE or SCSI controller for the device node from the list. For example: If you select IDE Controller 0, the IDE Controller 0 disk is excluded from backups for all virtual machines in the backup set or subclient.


Select the device node location from the available list.

Virtual Disk Name Pattern

Enter a pattern for the names of disks to filter (for example, VMName.vhd or VMName.vhdx).
