SET FILE/NOBACKUP DKxxxx:[xxxxx..]*.*

Hello, i am using the set file/nobackup on several directories and my backup log files shows every file that was skipped with a /nobackup flag "data not copied, file marked NOBACKUP". Is there a way to turn off this reporting while still get the other BACKUP-I-, BACKUP-W-, BACKUP-F-, etc messages? thanks for any advise you can offer

No, I don't think so, but you can process the logfile after the job has run:

$ edit /edt backup.log
delete all '%BACKUP-I-NOBACKUP,'
exit
$!

I think I am with Uwe, no direct way of manipulating BACKUP.

However, instead of EDIT/EDT I would use SEARCH:

$ Search BACKUP.LOG "%BACKUP-I-NOBACKUP" /nohead/mat=nor/out=backup1.log

Yes, better idea, because it works on an open logfile, too!

What problem are you really trying to solve?
The SET FILE/NOBACK will, as per help, still record the file header (name and attributes), just not the data. This is typical needed only for large, re-creatable, scratch type files. (like a page file!).

If you just do not want to backup specific directories, please consider using the /EXCLUDE on the actual backup command.

Admittedly you would have to add this every time though.

fwiw,
Hein.

Hein,

correct me if I m wrong, but I was of the impression that /EXCUDE does not work on /IMAGE ?

Hello, i have to do /NOBACKUP for image backups. The files that we are not backing up are data feeds that should not be on tapes and are re-creatable. I think i can live with skipping through a few hundred of these in the log. Thanks for the input.
