Ok, some of what you've said has made this even more confusing:
- You said "You've guessed pretty correctly", but two people made completely different guesses.
- How do you connect to this "12TB series of drives running in RAID mode"?
- How exactly do you make a large portion of the "online" files also exist offline? Are you using the "Make available offline" function in Windows I mentioned? You didn't confirm that.
- Why are the "online" files random?
- What is the exact error you're getting in Reflect? Does it specifically say, "Did not back up this file because it is online"? If it just says it didn't back up a file and the "because they are online" portion was your own comment rather than part of the Reflect error message, then the fact that Reflect didn't back up certain files doesn't mean it would be able to filter them out. The only filter mechanisms available in Reflect are the include and exclude paths and masks that you can customize on a per-directory basis.
Also just for clarity, if the issue is in fact that your "online" files aren't available during the backup because your system is not connected to your that source at the time, then it would be helpful to identify the problematic files that you're currently calling "online" as "online-only" or "unavailable" (during the backup). Technically if the files are literally "online", then that would mean they're actually available and therefore could be backed up. If on the other hand when you say "online" files you mean "files stored in the cloud at a place like OneDrive", then that's something else entirely.
