Wildcards in SyncToy RRS feed

  • Question

  • What valid wildcards for exclude files? Are they same as DOS?
    Does *00##.* work?

  • Hi AntMc,

    As I have just tried, both wildcard “*” and “?” are supported by “exclusion” filter. And you can even use these wildcards in “files to include” and “files to exclude” sections together at the same time.

    BTW, I have not met wildcards other than “*” and “?”, so I am not sure whether “#”, which you mentioned, could work.
