Filters not working

Post by FlumenSV »


I've been using Cobian Backup (CB) for some time to back up my Synology NAS. However, recently I've noticed CB doesn't respect what is in the Exclusion list in the Filter section.

Synology uses #recycle folder where it temporarily stores everything that is deleted. I've placed *\#recycle\* in the exclusion list, but I still see CB backing up that map nevertheless. This wouldn't be much of a problem if Synology wouldn't make some changes on files in that folder on a daily basis, which screws up incremental backups in CB.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug in CB?

Try with the mask

*\#recycle\* \*

This will exclude even the subdirectories.
