    Hi all,

    I have installed sbackup, it backs us up some directories but I do not want it to backup any sub directories called just 'data'

    I used the regex option and entered


    It still backs up data directories ... there goes 1GB ...

    If I change the regex to just plain


    it works fine but it also excludes 'process_data' a python directory.

    Can anybody tell me where my exclude regex is wrong ?



    PS Love the software !

      The regex is applied to full path of every file or directory, so in your case a regex of "/data/" should work.

      Opps, I take it back

      /data/ does work as expected, I suspect I had not saved the latest config.

      Many thanks for your help, a great project just what I needed :)
