WD Backup not accurately showing selected subfolders


Include section in WD Backup still shows the parent folder after one or all subfolders have been deselected.




When a folder is selected for back up, it includes all sub-folders and files for backup. Later, if some sub-folders or files are deselected the Include section still shows the entire parent folder since the parent folder was not deselected.


  1. Deselect the parent folder first.

  3. Then select the intended sub-folders.

  5. Include section now will display the correct parent and subfolder selected for backup.
