Rules - can't backup just .exe files

I want to backup just .exe files so I made this rulset:
---
Files to exclude
*.*

Locations to always include
*.exe
---

It's only working partially. I get mostly just the .exe files, however I also get any files wich has 'exe' somewhere in it's name. Examples: SciLexer.dll NppExec.dll HexEditor.ini

Am I doing something wrong?

Try

doing just .exe as that will plain text match, hopefully!

exe files

I have nearly the same concern and found that for regular expression to work, you should put something like :

* *[.]exe

Both suggestions worked partially

Now I only get .exe and .exe.manifest files. I'm sticking with .exe as that is the shortest and easiest. Both gave the same results.

Thanks for the help!
