Add-WBFileSpec

Syntax

Add-WBFileSpec [-Policy] <WBPolicy> [-FileSpec] <WBFileSpec[]> [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Add-WBFileSpec cmdlet adds the WBFileSpec object, which specifies the items to include or exclude from a backup, to the backup policy (WBPolicy object). The WBFileSpec object can include or exclude multiple files, folders, or volumes. You can define the list of items to include by using the New-WBFileSpec cmdlet and then using this cmdlet to update the WBPolicy object.

Input and Return Types

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet. The return type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

Notes

  • The WBPolicy object must be in edit mode. To put the WBPolicy object in edit mode for a policy that has been set as the scheduled backup policy, use the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet with the -Editable parameter. The New-WBPolicy cmdlet creates a new WBPolicy object that is already in edit mode.

  • To use Windows Server Backup cmdlets, you must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.
