How to exclude virtual links when backing up Documents folder?

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

How to exclude virtual links when backing up Documents folder?

Post by LM2540 »

Can someone walk me through how to keep SyncBackFree from including all of the files that are linked virtually within the Documents folder and just back up the files I've placed directly in the Documents folder?

I tried using the option to Choose Sub-Directories and Files but it doesn't show these folders in that window so that I can uncheck them. Yet when I try to run the backup, there are all kinds of files from folders that I can't see in that window.

I'm using SyncBackFree V9 on Windows10 64bit.
