I was poking around the contents of my latest backup because I've been puzzled at why my weekly incremental backups are so large. I found that hiberfil.sys, pagefile.sys and swapfile.sys are all being incrementally backed up (along with a bunch of files like pagefile.sys~001), even though these files are listed in the files to exclude filter.This is what my Exclude Files filter looks like:*.temp; *.tmp; *.bak; *.~*;c:\hiberfil.sys;c:\swapfile.sys;c:\pagefile.sysThis is what the XML view has: <exclude_file_filter>*.temp; *.tmp; *.bak; *.~*;c:\hiberfil.sys;c:\swapfile.sys;c:\pagefile.sys</exclude_file_filter> This seems so simple, I don't see what I am doing wrong.Thanks for any help.
*.temp; *.tmp; *.bak; *.~*; hiberfil.sys; swapfile.sys; pagefile.sys

+x twgonder - 20 February 2020 3:31 PMThanks for the answer Nick. The answer seems to contradict the original post and your answer there. But maybe it is a new feature in Reflect?To continue, suppose we want to exclude .tmp and .bak files. Can that be done? And where?
