By selecting "Custom filter," a Backup & Sync user can already manually add any file type or create a *.* filter to sync all file types. However, for convenience, Webroot presents Backup & Sync users with commonly used default options for file types. There are likely many other commonly used file types that would fit into these categories which Webroot does not currently automatically sync. The "PDF" idea will result in a new file type - *.pdf - being added to the Document files list.
As long as we're going to add *.pdf, what else do you think we should add?
Not necessarily every suggestion will be implemented, but probably a lot of them will be accepted. Please post your file type suggestions here. :)
Also, if you have friends who use Webroot, please share this post using the Share button at the bottom right side of this message, because we'd like to get as much feedback as possible on this idea before taking action.

Before the 145 build was released I added files like pdf and txt. I see that they are added on this build so they are listed twice.Will this have any effect on the backup, like double backup on these files?
Or am I missing something?
Pegas, I doubt very much that the change would automatically trigger. It could potentially cause people to back up things they intentionally did not want to back up, create confusion, and eat up storage space based on an assumption that may not be correct for everyone in all cases. So yes, un/re is the way to go to get these settings to trigger. They are "default" settings after all.
