Backup Exclusions
« on: September 28, 2017, 04:52:35 pm »
IN Tools > Options > File Options > Backup: Exclusions.
Set exclusions to something.
OK

Go back and try to clear the field.
Slick won't let you set it empty - it keeps putting back the previous value.


Also, give some hint as to what it allows as exclusions.
I tried ANT style paths - and apparently that isn't recognized, but I could only tell thru experimentation to see what was or was not being backed up.

Exclusions should allow more than a single directory name.
It should accept filename patterns at least, like: *.obj;*.exe, etc.

I am seeing this too. If you enter multiple exclusions it will let you delete all but one of them.

It also allows you to enter any old character in the field. Seems like it should complain if you don't enter a valid exclusion.

Seems that even when I have garbage in "Exclusions", backups are disabled.
Since Slick wouldn't let me enter "", I entered "asdasdASDAFASASDFASDFASDF".
With that in place, Slickedit was not backing up any files.
This is with RC2

Clearing the backup exclusion is fixed in the next build.

Backup exclusions has been enhanced to support semicolon delimited ant-like exclusions liked you'd expect in the next build (ie path1/;*.bak).
