 Sure. I want to backup some files without touching them. I have some=20
 directories which I want only some files to be backuped (temp files=20
 come to mind). Regex will be welcome too.

 If you mind, please change "Path =3D" to something like "Include =3D"=20
 beeing it a directory or not.

 If you have time today, (an of course, IF want to make it) please send=20
 me a new snapshot, I have to implement the backup schema today since=20
 today is saturday and no one is working here.
 And, how about splitting boxbackup into 2 files? A server and a client=20
