Filtering Files from Archiving

You can manually set filters on selected file types, folders or files to be excluded from archive and backup operations. For example, if you specify *.txt in the filters then all the text files will be excluded from being archived or backed up.

Before You Begin

You can use wildcards to specify the files to be filtered. For more information, see Wildcards for the UNIX File System Agent.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > pseudo-client> Big Data Apps > instance.
  2. Right-click the subclient, and then click Properties.

    The Subclient Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the Filters tab, in the Exclude 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.
