Backup selections specify which files and folders you want to back up on desktops. An administrator can create a backup selection that applies to all users in a profile. In this case, the backup selection is called a profile backup selection. In addition, desktop users who have sufficient rights can create and modify backup selections.
Within each backup selection you can do the following:
Choose to include or exclude subfolders, file types, or specific folders.
Set the number of revisions that are retained for each file in the backup selection.
Configure the backup selection to transfer only the changed portions of files.
Specify how long to retain backup files after the source files are deleted.
Symantec strongly recommends that you consider disk space when choosing backup selections for desktops and laptops. A large number of local copies may cause the Desktop Agent user's computer to run out of disk space. For example, you may want to avoid selecting entire drives for backup or synchronization.
