Selection lists provide a quick and easy way of selecting files that you back up often. After you choose devices, directories and files, you can save the selections as a selection list that you can use in regularly scheduled operations or once-only operations. Selection lists, which define what is to be backed up, are also automatically created when you create a backup. You can combine a selection list with a policy and quickly create a backup job.
Backup Exec detects and notifies you about items in a selection list that are no longer on the resource. Notification occurs as a selection list is loaded for local selections, and as any remote server is expanded in the tree.
You can also choose to notify recipients when a job completes that contains a particular selection list. This feature allows you to notify users who may be interested that a particular set of selections was backed up. The completion status of the job is included in the notification.
