  2. Follow the backup wizard step to the Backup Source step.
  3. Exclude files and folders which have been displayed.

  2. Open file properties.
  3. Switch to the Security tab, then click Edit.

  1. Specify the proper access permissions (Read and List folder contents permissions must be granted), then click OK or Apply.

In case there are many locations, proceed with files and folders sequentially
