Any idea how to exclude a wild-carded path(s) from a command-line 7zip command?
I'm doing something this:
7z.exe a -t7z archive.7z FolderToArchive\ -mx0
and would like to exclude any \bin*.* or \obj*.* folders found underneath "FolderToArchive". To exclude files you can use the
-x parameter. The help file gives this example for using
7z a -tzip archive.zip *.txt -x!temp.*
That's great for excluding a file. But, again, I would like to exclude a wildcard-specified folder. Under my "FolderToArchive" there are multiple folders, under those folders there may or may not be "bin\" and "obj\" folders. I would like to not include these in the archive.
I've tried patterns like:
-x!bin* -x!bin*.* -x!\bin* -x!\bin*.* -x!\bin\* -x!\bin\*.*
None seem to exclude. Is this simply a limitation of 7zip?
