    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.
