Thread: Backing up excluding and including

    Default Backing up excluding and including

    Hallo All,

    I'd like to set up a backup so that one specific directory tree (i.e. my documents) is regularly backup up.

    YaST seems to have a reasonable backup tool so I was trying to set that up by declaring the directory I want to backup in the 'include' section and by putting root ( '/' ) in the exclude section. However, the tool seems to rattle off and tries to backup tons of files that I don't want backing up. Arrrggghhh!

    What am I doing wrong here? I must be making some basic error. Or can anyone suggest a better backup-tool?

    Regards and thanks,
    Alan Searle

    There is an obvious logical problem in that /home/~/Documents is in / (even if /home is on a separate partition). So change your excludes and see it that works.
