I don't think that Unix-style shell globs define "**" to mean anything. Or rather, it has the same meaning as "*" -- any sequence of characters not including "/". Have you tried !02 Microsoft SQL Server/xxx/MSSQL/Backup There are further complexities of .gitignore that you might be able to exploit: If the line starts with "/", then the pattern must describe the file's pathname starting from the current directory. But if the line does not start with "/", the pattern may match starting in any subdirectory. Thus, including "*.bak" causes any file ending in ".bak" to be ignored, no matter what subdirectory directory it is in. That means that you might be able to use "!MSSQL/Backup" to un-ignore the directories you are interested in.
