Does your software support the use of wildwards.
I would like to include in my backups file types such as *.exe, *.bat or *.doc by using wildcards.
I am also intrested to find out if your software supports excluding files by using wildcards such as *.tmp, *.bak, $NtUninstall????????$ or ~*.*
I am using Zip Backup to CD version 3.18.7.408

Files to include

You may use wild cards (*) and it is possible to specify more than one condition per selection:

C:\test\*.doc|*.txt|*.xls
will backup all files in C:\test and its subdirectories with the extension doc, txt, xls.

It is not allowed to specify folder and file specifications on the same line. Folder specifications always ends with a "\" if the last character is different it is seen as a file name specification.
