Configuring Exclusions to Filters

When excluding files from backup operations, you can also provide exceptions to the data that you are excluding. For example, if you want to exclude from your migration backup operation all the files in the /Ops directory except the Maintenance file, you can add a subclient filter to exclude the /Ops directory from being backed up and also add a corresponding subclient filter to allow the Maintenance file to be backed up.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > pseudo-client > Distributed Apps > instance.
  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/patterns: area, click Add, and then type the file or folder name.

    You can also enter patterns of files or folders using wild cards. You cannot enter Escape sequence to specify the path or file name.

  4. Click OK.
