Excluded Files & Directories not working (6 posts)

    Just installed the newest update. Doing so wiped out my settings for "excluded files & directories." Moreover, I cannot re-check any of the boxes--nothing happens when I click a checkbox. Clicking 'toggle all' also does nothing. ??

    The settings were wiped because the new algorithm needs a fresh start.

    The exclude widget now uses AJAX to push the changes to the server, so when you click an individual box it may take a small amont of time for the changes to be reflected.

    Thanks Michael, but it's not working for me. I click 'toggle all' and nothing happens--I waited 60 seconds. When I click a directory, nothing happens (to the checkbox) and I'm instantly 'jumped up' to the top of the screen, ending up with a view as if I'd just re-chosen Backup Settings.

    Shall I delete and re-install?

    If I "toggle all" it check on or off only randomly and never all to me with firefox 12.

    There is no need to delete and re-install.

    The reason you are being jumped up is because the AJAX request is timing out. It appears that I have under estimated the latency here.

    Does checking just one file or dir work?

    Hi Michael,

    Based on the comment from matteoraggi, I tried making the settings in Safari 5.1.5. It works. I'd been using Firefox 12.0 when making my earlier comments.

    To answer your question, when using Firefox 12.0, I did not try checking one file, but checking just one directory did not work.

    Thanks for your attention.
