Are these mutually exclusive, inclusive, or does one take precedence over the other? It's not clear to me, and I did RTxM. (Not that it matters TODAY because Mozy Mac is still broken and awaiting a software fix.) Of the two, backup sets seem more flexible when trying to exclude files of a certain pattern type (ie spotlight indexes, etc), but they don't appear to work on hidden files.
Mozy is as greedy as possible when it comes to merging between backup sets and file selection, meaning that it'll try and attempt as many files as possible that match either rules, with any lower level exclusions taking precedence!
If this was a ransom virus then you can search for the file extension used by the virus in the web restore page until you can find a date where the extension doesn't exist in the backup, then you can restore all files from that data.
Thanks for the response. I'm mostly through with deleting corrupted files from one more computer and downloading replacement files from Mozy, so at this point it's easier to just continue this tedious process. My main computer was affected, but I got to it before any corrupted files were backed up, so I was able to do a mass delete and restored the entire C: drive from Mozy. My laptop wasn't turned on, so wasn't affected. All three computers are clean and have additional protection on them. We don't know the source of the virus, but suspect it was from a game site visited by grandson.
