Cloud Backup include/exclude list

In Norton 360 Cloud Backup, when defining a backup set, you specify the sources (drive, directory, etc.), AND in the file types, you have to give the extension of every file type you want backed up.  I want to back up EVERYTHING in My Documents (and subdirectories). In the file types, you cannot use wildcards. 

This stinks.  I started doing some things in Visual Studio, and it creates a bunch of different extensions.  Do I have to manually add each one?  No way.

You can manually choose files and folders to be added to the backup set. See this Norton KB

Personally, I have unchecked all the default file extensions and just manually chosen the folders I want to back up.
