I think for exclude-globbing-filelist you don't need that dash prefix.
Here is an extract from mine, which works under Windows:
ignorecase:**Tecom Bluetooth Dongle Application setup guide.pdf**
ignorecase:**/Temporary Internet Files/**
- remove the prefixed dash
- you are right to use unescaped forward slashes
- try using ignorecase: as a prefix and see if this helps
- no problem to exclude files or folders with spaces in the names
[With TimeDicer you provide an excludelist in Windows format and it
*nixifies it 'under the hood' to work with rdiff-backup.]

I've been trying to make a backup with rdiff-backup from Windows Vista
to a remote Linux box via ssh.
I'm trying to achieve something like this:
Files\rdiff-backup\my_exclude.txt" --remote-schema "s:\Program
Files\putty2\plink.exe -i privatekey.ppk %%s rdiff-backup --server"
File my_exclude.txt looks like this:
I've tried other variations, like S:\\/Temp\\/doc\\/testor
S:\Temp\docwhich was suggested in Windows howto, but nothing works and
it throws this:
Fatal Error: Fatal Error: The file specification
cannot match any files in the base directory
So my goal is to exclude "test" directory from S:\Temp\doc. I am
planning on backuping my Documents after I success with this, so I
would also like to exclude some directories with spaces in their name
(like "My Games").
Is it possible to do this with rdiff-backup on Windows?
Thanks and regards,
