    Is it possible to exclude whole folders when making an image backup?
    I have an old PC with only a CD-burner, and want to minimize the number of disks needed. Basically I only want to include the folders: windows, program and 'Documents and Settings' to be able to get the system back without having to reinstall Windows and all the programs.

    In Settings, you can set exclude mask of directories and file types.

    For instance: C:/data/exclude/*.* will exclude all files in the exclude folder.

    Will that also exclude files in subfolders of C:/data/exclude ?
