I had originally selected “My Documents”, and then proceeded to painstakingly select only the folders/files inside there I wanted backed up only to realize that it’s backing up the whole folder.
So I mapped Drive A to the drive path to Documents, and re-did my selections.
In “Change Selected Files”, I removed “My Documents”, and it once again shows up as a choice to make.
The only problem is, if I look at the file structure in the backup tree, it still has all those “My Documents” files in there, so they’re now in there twice!
I was hoping it would purge what I was no longer backing up, but in the absence of that, I was hoping for a ‘gentle’ purge command rather than just nuking files.
So I come down to this… can I just nuke files from the backup structure, or will I mess up some internal count/tracking thing?
Worst case would be to just nuke the folder and begin anew… I don’t have an issue with that, if that’s the answer.
