Hello.

 

I just finished reading bleepingcomputer's article about Cobian Backup.

 

It does everything I want... except I saw no mention of a filesize filter.

 

I want a simple way to say "ignore all files larger than XX KB".

 

If Cobian cannot do that, can bleepingcomputer recommend a (free) backup app that can?

 

Thanks.

Maybe Macrium Reflect Pro [and maybe even free version]?  I was checking when the MR update bloc hit me in the face.  I will come back with a better answer as soon as the update is finished, and let's me continue with the menu.  Addendum:  I searched both file and image backup menus, no setting for maximum file size [*]  to backup; only setting for maximum backup image size.  [*] If there's such a setting, I can't find it.  Searched through Image for Windows - can't find file size filter there either.  I don't even know where to start with ATI2016.
