Any idea how to exclude a wild-carded path(s) from a command-line 7zip command?
I'm doing something like this:
7z.exe a -t7z archive.7z FolderToArchive\ -mx0
and would like to exclude any
\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
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 the
bin\ folder. Is this simply a limitation of 7zip?
