Defined file types for backup

Heads up!

We've transitioned to a new documentation portal to serve you better. Access the latest content by clicking here.

inSync provides defined file types that you can choose to include or exclude from a backup. You can configure these settings from the Create Profile wizard.

By default, inSync:

  • Excludes the following files types from backups: Video files, Audio files, Executables, Image files, and Email files.
  • Includes the following file types in backups: Office files, PDF files, and HTML files.

    See, Defined file types for backup

Based on your requirements, you can always change the default selections while configuring the profile in inSync.

Note: By default, inSync excludes the following file extensions from backup via Exclude Files in a profile: *.wim; *.bak; *.cab; *.dll; *.exe; *.tmp; *.ost; *.olk; *.oab; *.dmp; *.vmem; *.driveupload; *.indd; *.ipa; *.ithmb.
