Excluding Files

Help

  • I am using beta 4.09 of 7za.exe under the Take Command/32 shell on Windows NT 4.

    I have found that the file exclusion switch is ignored when I use absolute path names for the files to compress.  For example,
       7za.exe a -x!*.bak 7Test c:\data\*
    will include all of the .bak files in the archive.  If I change to the c:\data\ directory and run
       7za.exe a -x!*.bak 7Test *
    the .bak files are excluded, ie the expected result.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks.
