Re: [rdiff-backup-users] Backup on Windows with exclude-globbing-filelist and spaces in path

removing dash prefix and adding ignorecase helped to solve my problem. Just for anyone who might have this problem, this is what the entry in exclude filelist looks like now:
Thanks a lot!

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:
"S:\Program Files\rdiff-backup\rdiff-backup.exe" --exclude-globbing-filelist "S:\Program Files\rdiff-backup\my_exclude.txt" --remote-schema "s:\Program Files\putty2\plink.exe -i privatekey.ppk %%s rdiff-backup --server" s:\Temp\doc address@hidden::/home/user/.rdiff-backup
File my_exclude.txt looks like 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,
