Hi Dan,

I use this schema:
rdiff-backup --exclude "/topsrcdir/.recycle" /topsrcdir/ backup
Try to use wildchars * if it works:
rdiff-backup --exclude "/topsrcdir/.recycle" --exclude "/topsrcdir/*/.recycle" --exclude "/topsrcdir//*/*/.recycle" /topsrcdir/ backup

I am trying to exclude certain folders from my backup.  What I would like to remove is all folders with a period (for example, everyone has a .recycle/ folder.

I try this:

rdiff-backup --exclude '**'/.recycle source backup

It runs through the backup while still copying this .recycle directory

Perhaps I am misunderstanding the documentation?
