I need to exclude ZIP files from backup - Help! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, my WHS is working great. Except that one of my users (PCs) has tons, I mean tons (dozens of GIGs) in ZIP files that are practically useless.

    I know I can configure to exclude directories, but how about excluding specific files or file types?

    Thanks,
    JC

  • You can only exclude folders, not individual files. Your workaround would be to train the user to put their zip files in a single folder for storage, and not back up that folder.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
