hi!

trying to backup an external HDD to our server that was used on a mac before. nwo there's tons of small files ca 5kb each starting with a "."

for example:

._konzept_0.1.ai
._konzept_1.0.pdf
._sony_ps4_largeB.psd
._06_sonyGC2007.mpg

how can i filter these out? whats the syntax?

can someone help me?
thank you!

1. Backup Settings > Backup What > Details > Add...
2. "Exclude" should be pre-selected.
3. Select "Files"
4. Set "Matching" to

        ._*

5. If you want to also match by size, click on More and set the File Size section as required.
