Using wildcards in an Exchange backup selections list
Wildcard characters can be used to define groups of databases. This way multiple objects can be backed up without having to specify the objects individually in the backup selections list. Multiple data streams must also be enabled. If this option is not enabled, the backup fails.
Table: Supported wildcard characters
Use as a substitute for zero or more characters. Specify the asterisk as the last character in the string.
Example: To specify all objects that start with an a use a*.
Question mark (?)
Use as a substitute for one or more characters in a name.
Example 1: The string s?z processes all objects that have s for a first character, any character for a second character, and z for a third character.
Example 2: The string
Left & right brackets ([ ... ])
These wildcard characters are not supported for the
Only one wildcard pattern per backup selections list entry is allowed.
If a wildcard pattern is not honored it is treated literally.
Wildcard patterns are honored only in the final segment of the path name. For example:
Microsoft Information Store:\*
Microsoft Information Store:\Database*
Microsoft Information Store:\Data??se
Microsoft Exchange Database Availability Groups:\*
Microsoft Exchange Database Availability Groups:\Database*
Microsoft Exchange Database Availability Groups:\Data??se
