Add-OBFileSpec

Adds the OBFileSpec object, which specifies the items to include or exclude from a backup, to the backup policy (OBPolicy object).

Syntax

Add-OBFileSpec
   [-Policy] <CBPolicy>
   [-FileSpec] <CBFileSpec[]>
   [-Confirm]
   [-WhatIf]

Description

The Add-OBFileSpec cmdlet adds the OBFileSpec object, which specifies the items to include or exclude from a backup, to the backup policy (OBPolicy object). The OBFileSpec object can include or exclude multiple files, folders, or volumes. The list of items to include can be defined by using the New-OBFileSpec cmdlet and then update the OBPolicy object using this cmdlet. The Add-OBFileSpec cmdlet supports WhatIf and Confirm parameters with a low impact. The low impact signifies that the cmdlet will not prompt the user by default. The WhatIf parameter gives a verbose description of what the cmdlet does. The Confirm parameter specifies whether the cmdlet should prompt the user. Using -Confirm:$FALSE will override the prompt.

To use Microsoft Azure Backup cmdlets, the user needs to be an administrator on the protected machine.
