Specific folder name doesn't allow backup
I noticed a problem in backing up a folder beginning with the ~ . I named some folders like this because it was quicker access for the ones that I used the most in My Documents. All this time I thought these folders were being backed up but with nearly 1TB of information, I didn't notice a few GBs were missing.
After having to do a factory refresh on my computer, I go to put my files back and only then discover the folders beginning with ~ missing. Fortunately I had also backed up my files elsewhere using a different method so no lost data.
The attached screenshot shows how I was testing different folder file names and only the one beginning with the ~ doesn't backup. I have solved my own problem but I wasn't able to find this issue in the Forums and wanted to see if others (or Symantec) knew about this?
