I am having several  windows file servers which is backed up with IBM TSM software.
For one of the folder on this servers - "D:\Backups" I want to define different management class with different retention period.
What  I did was :
1. Management class has been created( FSBACKUP)
2. In dsm.opt file I added this statement
        Include.backup "D:\Backups\*" FSBACKUP
3. Restarted tsm sheduler service

After completion of the sheduled backup I found that my data is still not backed in FSBACKUP mgmt class.

What I changed was  Include.backup statement  to -  Include.backup "D:\Backups\...\*" FSBACKUP

After running the manual incremental backup with BA client GUI I am seeing the new or modified files to the new mgmt class FSBACKUP, but not the other ones.
Do I have to make something else?

I am new to TSM so I am not sure if this is the proper way of doing the things. Any recommendations are welcomed.
