New-OBFileSpec

Creates a new OBFileSpec object based on the parameters that are specified.

Syntax

New-OBFileSpec
   [-FileSpec] <String[]>
   [-NonRecursive]
   [-Exclude]

Description

The New-OBFileSpec cmdlet creates a new OBFileSpec object based on the parameters that are specified. The OBFileSpec object defines what items will be included or excluded from backups.

Multiple files, folders, or volumes can be included or excluded. Volume paths can be specified using volume drive letters, volume mount points, or GUID-based volume names. If a GUID-based volume name is specified, it should be terminated with a backslash (\\). The wildcard character (*) can be used in the file name when specifying a path to a file or when specifying a file type to include or exclude.

The items in the OBFileSpec object can be specified to be either recursive (include the item and everything subordinate to the item in the file structure) or non-recursive (include only the item).
