Adding IFS directories

We are using OS/400 V4R4. How do I add IFS directories in my daily backup policy with my other libraries and folders?

The following command will save the entire IFS (Taken from the iSeries Info Center):

SAV DEV('/QSYS.LIB/media-device-name.DEVD') +
OBJ(('/*') ('/QSYS.LIB' *OMIT) +

The command omits QSYS.LIB file system because the SAVSYS command and the SAVLIB LIB(*NONSYS) command both save it. The command omits the QDLS file system because the SAVDLO command saves it.
