Hello Team,

It is necessary to back up only the directory structure on the Linux operating system, regardless of the depth of their nesting.

The copy is to exclude all files in the directory and subdirectories.

What should be the correct exclude filter notation for this case?

Several attempts were made as directed in the manufacturer's documentation.

The exclude item uses the /**/*.* filter, which excludes only files with extensions, but does not exclude files without extensions.

The /**/* type filter excludes all subdirectories and files inside the indicated content.

I would like to get it using commvault software, not third party solutions.

Is it possible to exclude a file without extentions?

Good afternoon.  After talking to our Unix SMEs, I recommend that you open a case with our Unix team for this issue.  This may not have an easy workaround.
