Windows backup selection rules

I would like to back up all files of a certain extension on a drive.  I have tried various paths and use of /*.*, etc.  Can anyone recommend the correct syntax for backing up all .doc (for example) files on a drive letter.

These files are at various places on the drive and I can't easily use multiple paths in my backup selections list. 

 

Also, is there a NetBackup tech document that gives Windows backup selection rules, paths, examples?

 

thanks in advance,

 

JT

    The theory of combining exclude and include lists only works in theory.The typical result is a timeout.
