It does not. But it is the script command parameter as a whole that needs to be quoted, because it contains spaces.

It's working now. Maybe it's because of the new version.

Thanks for your assistance.

Enclose the mask into double quotes:
option exclude "*.zip>600000K; *\; *.zip.ent"
See documentation.

Hi,

I have reviewed the documentation and topics in the forum but continue to have problems with my exclude options.

These all fail with "Too many parameters for command 'option'."

option exclude *\; *.zip>600000K
or
option exclude *.zip>600000K; *.zip.ent
or
option exclude *.zip>600000K; *\; *.zip.ent

However this does work -> option exclude *.zip>600000K
but I still need multiples to work.

Thanks for your time.

BTW: It's functionality I am happy to see included in the new version.
