OK, question, does diskspan have an option to exclude files from the compression?

Because the built in exclude option of freearc doesn't seems to work with it, it crashes arc.exe.

Yes, it wasn't diskspan itself, that was my problem, the exclude option.

Consider diskspan as a compressor, answer this question so you have answer to the question you have asked me. Does pzlib for example have an option to exclude certain files?

So I guess that's a no... Well, but since it should be not different than any other compressors used with freearc (like srep, precomp, etc.), then why does the -x switch (exclude switch) for arc.exe causes a crash with diskspan when it doesn't with other external compressors?

Try to modify your simple Batch Codes, to reach the target, there is a solution to every problem, not persist the your job only on the external components you use.

In theory you're right, but I honestly changed the command and switches so many times in so many ways that I lost count, nothing helped.

Beside, the last thing you can say about my batch code is simple, it's huge & complex, taking multiple variables from external .ini files.

So far, the only command with diskspan that actually worked was using the one from the example provided with diskspan, almost to the letter.

So, for the time being I've just created a bypass that takes files that needs to be excluded and just moves them away from the source folder before compression and back after compression.

Again, this is only with Diskspan.
