Firstly, let me congratulate you for the awesome program that XCloner is.
It's a must have for people who manage web servers.
I'm having a hard time understanding how the feature that I'm about to request was never mentioned or added by the author(s).
Well, there is this neat and necessary feature called 'Excluded Directories' that XCloner actually has, but what I don't understand is how there is no feature for Included Directories. To me it is as much important to be able to specify files and folder paths that you wish to include in your backup as it is to specify files and folder paths that you DO NOT wish to include.
Obviously that some users won't even need this feature, but others will. Anyway, I would love if you added that.
Fun fact: Under a Windows OS, when setting the Recycle Bin folder as an excluded directory, XCloner is not able to parse the folder name correctly. “$Recycle.Bin” is parsed as “.Bin” in the “.excl” file. The end result is that the contents of the recycle bin actually end up in your backup archive/folder.
