Step 3. Selecting files to backup

Source files may be located on the Local / LAN or FTP server.

Click the "Add" button to show the file selection dialog.

Select the files and folders that you want to back up.

If you need to add a folder like "\\comp1\d$\MyData\", you must click the checkbox "Specify the path manually" and then enter the path.

If source data are located on an FTP, please specify the FTP settings and click "Connect". Then, select the files and folders and click OK to accept your selection.

Note! Exiland Backup supports the transparent proxy type only. You cannot use your login and password for proxy authentication.

The log of FTP commands is displayed in the bottom pane.

Click the "OK" button to close the selection dialog and you will see the specified files/folders in the list of selected objects.

For each folder you can specify the following filters:

Rules of using masks the same for both excluded subfolders and files:

 * - all characters

 ? - any one character


You can preliminarily scan the source files according to all the filters you selected. This allows you to know the size of the source data and see the list of files to be included in a future backup. For this, select the task and click the "Scan" button.
