At this step you specify files and folders you want to backup.

Adding Drives and Folders. Click the "Add..." button and choose the "Folders" option.
In the "Browse for folders" dialog, select one or several drives or folders that you want to add to the backup set for this, place checkmarks near desired drives or folders, and click "OK".
Repeat this procedure if you want to select more folders.
The list of selected folders will be added to the backup set. For each folder, you will see its size.

Adding Files. Click the "Add..." button and choose the "Files" option. In the "Open" dialog, select one or several files and click "Open".
Repeat this procedure if you want to select more files. The list of selected files will be added to the backup set. For each file, you will see its size.

Adding Registry Keys. Click the "Add..." button and select the "Registry Key" option. In the "Select Registry Key" dialog, choose required key and click "OK".
Repeat this procedure if you want to select more keys.
If you restore the registry key from the backup copy, then its current value will be replaced by the saved one.

    Saves all current mouse parameters specified in the Control Panel.
    After restoring, your current parameters will be updated.

  • IE Settings

    After restoring, the settings will be updated. To enable the restored settings, you need to restart Internet Explorer.
Click the "Add..." button and select the "Windows Settings" option.
During backup, the program will define what settings have been changed and backup them.
If you want to exclude some of Windows settings from the backup set (for example, "Mouse" or "Desktop"), you should remove the checkmark near that type of settings.

To remove Folders or Files select a folder or a file in the backup set and click the "Remove" button. You can use this method only for root folders or files. If you want to exclude a subfolder or a file inside a folder, remove the checkmark from it.

Checkmarks. Black checkmarks near files and folders indicate that they are included in the backup set. Grey checkmark near a folder shows that some files or subfolders in this folder are excluded.

Filter Settings. Click the "Filter Settings" button to specify masks for files to be processed and masks for files to be ignored during backup.



Backup Platinum will process only files that match at least one of include masks, but do not match any of exclude masks. When you specify masks, you should separate them by commas or semicolons. By default, "*.*" is used as include mask and no exclude masks are specified. This means that all files selected for the item will be included.

Apply these masks to folders as well as to files. Use this option to apply specified masks to folders as well as to files. If this option is not selected, masks are applied only to files.

Skip read-only files. The program will ignore all read-only files and folders.

Skip hidden files. The program will ignore all hidden files.

Skip system files. The program will ignore all system files.

Skip empty folders. Check this option if some folders in your backup set are empty or contain only excluded files. Backup Platinum will ignore such folders, and corresponding backup copies of those folders will not be created in destination.
There are several ways to exclude files from the backup set. You can remove checkmarks near files to exclude them, or use Include/Exclude masks, or specify item properties such as "Skip read-only files", "Skip system files", "Skip files created before" etc.

Skip files created before. The program will skip all files and folders created earlier than the date specified here.

Skip files modified before. The program will skip all files and folders last modified earlier than the date specified here.
