Hi All,

In file backup,when clicking on the upper right hand '' User defined ' and then '' File Type '

 

you get check boxes for among others for Documents,Videos,Pictures,BUT NOT for '' Downloads.''

 

when you click on '' + Add '  the window asks for a  ' Type Name ' Typing ' Downloads ' asks for the File name.

 

İ haven't got a clue as to what to do ...

 

Any help / explanation would be appreciated.

 

Thanks 

 

Julia.

I don't have Easeus but see if this works. In the left pane you will see "This PC". Click the arrow next to it to expand the tree and put a check next to your downloads folder.  This PC > C: > USERS > <yourname> > Downloads

I don't believe you click the +Add button. Just expand the tree of This PC and check a box next to Downloads of your user name. Does this work?

I can't even find a +Add button in the dialog under EaseUS To Do Free v10.6, which I believe to be the latest:

Brian, I believe the OP is using "File Type" in the dropdown box that shows "User Defined" as default. 

 

akepe, select User Defined in the dropdown box, not File Type. Then click the arrow next to This PC or Computer. Expand the tree and click the box next to Downloads of your user name.

and although 'Downloads ' did NOT appear under The Plan name along with Documents videos etc,

HOWEVER ,from 88 items in my Downloads folder,ONLY 16 were listed...

Are the files that are missing in Documents in the exclusion list? Perhaps they need to be added under File Types.

I will also add that Downloads that one really wants to keep in one's permanent archive really should be moved to a dedicated folder for that purpose.

 

Most backup software views the downloads folder much like the Recycle Bin folder.   The stuff that's generally in Downloads can be easily downloaded again and, once used, is typically not needed again.  This is why it's not generally backed up by default.

 

I save the installers for quite a bit of software that I've downloaded, but I move those installers to a folder I've created specifically for that purpose that is under either my own Documents folder or the Public Documents folder.

Sorry John, i hadn't seen your reply re:  '' select User Defined in the dropdown box, not File Type.'' İ just did that and everything is done now.

 

The downloads folder and all it's contents are listed.

 

Thank you very much indeed,for the prompt replies and your help.

 

Much appreciated.
