Thanks for the answer. wildcards do work fine when I make exclude and
include params, but then those are interpreted by rsync as simple
patterns to match. So you are saying that in the case of the actual
source folder param the shell must be involved and passing it through
TProcess params won't work?

I can live with this, but it would be nice for it work. Any way to
tickle the shell in some way through TProcess??
