Abstract

This invention performs a DFS (Distributed File System) fts clone to create a backup fileset of individual filesets within a DCE (Distributed Computing Environment) cell while excluding one or more filesets and/or fileset tree structures which are specified in a user-defined exclusion list. In addition, individual filesets within a fileset tree structure which would be excluded via the exclusion list may be included in the clone process by specifying the fileset(s) name(s) in a user-specified inclusion list.
