How do I backup multiple folders?

For example, if you wanted to backup the following folders:

  • C:\My Folder\My Documents\
  • C:\My Folder\My Music\
  • C:\My Folder\My Pictures\


You should set your source to C:\My Folder\ and the select those folders by clicking the Choose sub-directories and files button. If you do not want any new folders that are later created in C:\My Folder\ to be included then change the New Folders setting for C:\My Folder\ to Ignore new folders. If you also do not want any new files that are later created in C:\My Folder\ to be included then change the New Files setting for C:\My Folder\ to Ignore new files. For example:

If your folders are on different drives you must create a profile for each drive. You can then create a group and put the profiles in the group. The group can then be run or scheduled to backup all those folders in one go.
