FB adds new folders without being asked

Postby RAFB » Sun May 10, 2015 4:13 pm

I've been using FB for quite a while to make a weekly mirror and today I noticed that FB has been adding folders in the sources of that weekly task.

The folders are almost all in the C:\Program Files (x86) and correspond to all software I've been installing, as well as in the folder C:\Users\XXX\AppData, which are software created folders.

Is there any option to disable FB from adding these folders automatically to the mirror sources whenever I install anything new in the PC ? I can't find anywhere a option to prevent this.

Thanks

Hi,

If you added the C: drive as backup source, all new and modified files of the backup sources will be automatically included in backup.
If you manually added some folders as: "C:\Program Files\Softland" as backup source, the folders near "Softland" won't be automatically included in backup.
Only the child folders of the main source folders will be included.
