Hi,
since I deleted a couple of $NTUninstall folders I've been getting error messages.
As I don't really need to backup these folders I would like to exclude these from the job setup.

What is the correct way to do this?
Would something like this work: C:\WINDOWS\$Nt*.* /SUBDIR/EXCLUDE

Thank you for your help.

i'm looking at backup exec 12, i'm pretty sure the same for 11d
at the exclusion option in your backup policy, first select the folder you want to exclude(for the path)
then modify the file name as $Nt*
just uncheck the folder to exclude then click OK

Hello ryder0707,

Thanks for your reply.
I solved it by changing the AOFO settings for the backup.

Thanks for your help though, the excluding command will be useful for me in coming job setups.
