I would like to have filter feature, which can include or exclude the folders and files matching the given name (regular expression is also an option).

+1, definitely on the top of my wishlist.

I have used skydrive for backup, and this this project is great to automate the process. What I did was to zip the files to reduce the file size on transfer and (more useful) to preserve the timestamp (Skydrive marks each file with the time of transfer, not the time of original creation). Could a zip util be built in to optionally zip each file automatically this before it gets uploaded?

Another item for the wish list - as one of the filter options - to be able to only upload files with the archive bit set, and to optionally clear the bit when (and only when) the file has been uploaded. (i.e. to provide standard incremental and differential backup options)
