      The cursor response, which represents the files to copy, will have a new field added named required: <bool>, indicating whether the file must be copied regardless of choice when taking a selective backup.

      The following files not associated with a namespace will be marked as required:

      • WiredTiger
      • WiredTiger.backup
      • WiredTigerHS.wt
      • WiredTigerLog.*
        • Journal files.
      • _mdb_catalog.wt
      • sizeStorer.wt
      • Any collection residing in an internal database (admin, local or config).
      • Each databases system.views collection. This is necessary for time-series collections to be properly restored.
      • Files with table logging enabled. These need to be copied otherwise WiredTiger will return an error when running recovery.
