we are doing backup of azure file share (iDataAgent: Cloud apps), where are several folders. Do you know how I can exclude requested folders from the backup?

I didnt found any option where to do it.

The only thing what I found in admin book was:

Files with a trailing slash (/) in the file name are not backed up,


But I need to exclude folders not only files.


Thank you!

Hey @Stano,

This feature was added in 11.30 (CPR2023).


To add filters to exclude items from backups, in the Exclusions tab, do the following:

  • To enter paths to items you want to exclude from backups, in the Enter custom path field, enter a filter pattern, and then click the add 106386.png button.
