Syntax

Remove-WBFileSpec

      [-Confirm]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-WBFileSpec cmdlet removes a WBFileSpec object that contains a backup file specification from a WBPolicy object that contains a backup policy. A backup file specification contains a list of items to include in or exclude from backups that use the backup policy.

Before you can remove a backup file specification from a WBPolicy object, you must put the WBPolicy object in edit mode. To put the WBPolicy object in edit mode for a policy that you set as the scheduled backup policy, use the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet with the Editable parameter. The New-WBPolicy cmdlet creates a new WBPolicy object that is already in edit mode.

To use this cmdlet, you must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a backup file specification from a backup policy

PS C:\> $Filespeclist = Get-WBFileSpec -Policy $Policy
PS C:\> Remove-WBFileSpec -Policy $Policy -FileSpec $Filespeclist[1]

This example removes a backup file specification from a backup policy.

The first command gets a list of the backup file specifications from the backup policy in the variable named $Policy. The command assigns the backup file specifications to the array in the variable named $Filespeclist.

The second command removes the backup file specification in the first element of $Filespeclist from the policy stored in the $Policy variable.
