Check for redundancy in the Selection List

Dear Sir:

 

I have observed in several Customer cases that the selection list includes for example the complete C: drive, and then there is an additional line for the specific file that appears skipped: c:\windows\...restofthepath...\filename and then the job log shows the exception.

Just remove the direct reference to the file, if this is the case.
