Module: duplicity, backup

Hi,

is there any option to exclude folders from data backup? in Some cases I do not need / want a backup of all folders. e.g. in my case I use a some hdd backup routines on a laptop (based on acronis image). The backup file is stored to a share e.g. /var/lib/nethserver/ibay/machine_images

These files are very large and there is no need to include them within the backup routine.

Thank you and best regards
Thorsten

Yes, this is no problem, please see the following:

If you wish to exclude a file or directory from data backup, add a line to the file

/etc/backup-data.d/custom.exclude

The ability to read gives a clear advantage :slight_smile:
