I can't get #borgback, with patterns, to

include the folder
+ /home/user/.application/folder1

and exclude all other folders within
- /home/user/.application/*

What do I have to put in the patters to get this working?

#linux #help

what is borgback? and why do you try to include a dot dir from /home?

@hackbyte missed the "up", it was supposed to be #borgbackup. I want to include some files from that hidden directory in my backup.

it doesn't work the other way around as well, it always includes all files in the /home/user/.application folder.
