Backup Only One or Two Folders

How do I set the script up to ignore all files except those in a particular directory? I created a new test directory on my desktop and added just a few files. I tried making a script using exclude all files.dset and adding an entry to copy Desktop/Test. I saw in a separate script the ignore * and ignore .*

Anyway, the script runs but it is continues to evaluate more than I want it to, like 2000+ files with size way bigger than what is in my target folder.

Is it possible to focus SD in on one or two folders and have it truly ignore the rest of the drive?

It'll always evaluate all files, it just won't copy anything but those files in the folder.
