Content File Format for On-Demand Backups

Content for on-demand backups is defined through a content file, which is a text file that defines the location of the data that you want to back up.

The content file contains the fully qualified paths from the root directory to the directories and devices which you want to back up. The content file must be placed on the CommServe or the MediaAgent.

Important: Do not use filters, wildcards, or regular expressions in the Content File.

Content file entries should be in the following format:

\\client1\shares\ondemand_content\test1.txt

c:\data\datafile.txt

Similarly, Directive File entries should be in the following format:

c:\temp\ContentFile1.txt
