Hi there,

How do I add the option of excluting files, by using a text file that will contain the exclusion parameters.  (-x...) (exclude.ini contains: *.mp3, *.wav, *.avi).

"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" -p1234 a -r -mx=9 "Z:\Documents.zip" "C:\Documents\*.*"

Thanks,
Rene

I don't think you can get it to read a .ini file for excluded file types.

You have to specify them in the command, e.g: -x!*.pdf -x!*.doc

Marektech,

Thanks for helping.

Here is the description of what is required for the command line.

  -x[r[-|0]]]{@listfile|!wildcard}: eXclude filenames

How would i use "-x" to do what I need?

Thanks,
Rene

Create exclude.ini with each line another exclusion string, for example
*.mp3
*.wav
test*
*.ini

"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" -p1234 a -r -mx=9 "Z:\Documents.zip" "C:\Documents\*.*" -xr@exclude.ini

Oups, sorry... I was to quick in awarding points and miss-clicked your check-box.

I'll give you more points next time to compensate.

Cheers,
