  3. From the Paths/Filters tab in the Advanced Restore Options dialog box, type the files, directories, or file name patterns that you want to filter in the Filter Paths pane.  Use the Add button to specify your filter entries.  Each entry must be specified as a complete path and must be a child of the Source Paths pane.  Wildcard entries must be expressed as complete paths (e.g. C:\Test\*.dll, or /usr/lib/*.so).
