I'm testing SnapRAID 1.9 (command line) on Windows XP (32-bit) for the first time as an alternative to Flexraid. I set up my config file and started a sync, but I've run into two problems:
1) SnapRAID is apparently automatically excluding many files that I don't want to exclude. A few of them are understandable (system files), but many others are not and they are files I need to include in the parity. I had a look at the files listed and some were hidden or locked, but others were neither.
Ignoring special file...
.jpg, .ini, .dll, .wav, .dat, .pdf, .com, .bak...(and some files without extensions)
I did not use the "nohidden" config option. Please let me know how I make sure that SnapRAID includes all these files and does not ignore them.
2) SnapRAID seems to have choked on an extremely long file/pathname. I have run into this problem before, but other programs have been able to bypass these files and continue on with the other files. Is there an option to skip these types of file? Otherwise, I'd like to request that feature for a future release.
As it is now, I can't run SnapRAID without somehow scanning my drives for all files that might be too long for it to handle and manually adding them all to the config exclude list.

Thanks for your help.
