Support » Plugin: BackUpWordPress » Can’t “Stop Excluding” a deleted file with an ampersand in the filename

  • Hey 🙂

    I’ve just realised I cannot “Stop Excluding” one particular file that has long been deleted and that still appears in the Excluded list.

    The filename is/was t& I think the ampersand could be the culprit here.

    I could “Stop excluding” all other previously excluded and already deleted files.

    FWIW, I’ve just re-uploaded a file named t&
    There is the “file” icon next to the t& line in the Excludes list, but Stop Exclusing does not work.

    I think the & in the filename is messing with whatever scripts is running the stop exclusion command.

    I didn’t realize that caused issues – I’ve been playing with the exclusions to see if I can improve our default behavior there. I’ll also test and see if other special characters might be excluded as well. Thank you for letting me know – I’ll try and follow up on this as I can! 😀
