Any Way To Exclude A Folder For Backup?
« on: October 28, 2022, 05:19:32 PM »
I currently have all users on my server backing up to the /backup folder. The problem with this is I use Nextcloud and it has gotten very large on my harddrive space. This has caused the /dev/mapper/centos-root folder to get to 40% which is a 2TB size disk.

So my question is, can I exclude just the Nextcloud folder on this account from being backed up so I can save space?

Anyone have an idea to achieve this?

I dont think you understood my question. Let me try to explain better....

First, let me say I am not backing up CWP with Nextcloud. I have installed Nextcloud on a domain on CWP and it has gotten large. It seems in CWP I can not back-up individual domains, I can only backup the full account or nothing. Is there a way to change this?
