Hey! I'd like to be able to backup some folders with 7zip and I want certain files to be left out. I'm currently using the following command line
7zG.exe a game.7z lib game -mx=9 -x!*.o!*.a!*.def!*.exe!*.dll

but it doesn't exclude the files. It's obvious that I'm not doing it right, but I'm unable to find any example on how to do this properly. NOTE: oh, I posted this in the wrong forum.

It just doesn't work, look the command output:

C:\coding\work>7z.exe a test.7z ./test -x!*.o
