Hello,

this is a very specific question, I recommend you to enable bpbkar logging on the Windows client and try several tests with files with special characters in their name.

Re: exclusion issues on Windows server

Ideally speaking *.bak should be good enough to ensure that the file is excluded and the $ symbol should not really interfere with it.

Could you run the below on the destination machine to share the exclusion list

reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\VERITAS\NetBackup\CurrentVersion\Config\ /v Exclude

If the exclusion list appears to be fine then we may need to go with the bpbkar logs on the client machine to determine why the file is not getting excluded.
