Thread: Help please with exclusion of pCloud in rsync backup

  1. #1

    Default Help please with exclusion of pCloud in rsync backup

    Running Tumbleweed with KDE desktop and trying to backup my home directory to a NAS whilst excluding multimedia, NFS links and pCloudDrive, all of which are in my home directory.
    I think I have most of the exclusions in the command now but cannot stop the copying of pCloudDrive which of course is not needed here.

    The command is as follows:-

    Code:
    rsync -h --progress --stats -r -tgo -p --update --delete-after --delete-excluded --exclude=**/*tmp*/ --exclude=**/*cache*/ --exclude=**/*Cache*/ --exclude=**~ --exclude=/mnt/*/** --exclude=/media/*/** --exclude=**/lost+found*/ --exclude=/var/run/** --exclude=/run/** --exclude=/proc/** --exclude=/dev/** --exclude=/sys/** --exclude=**/*Trash*/ --exclude=**/*trash*/ --exclude=/home/alastair/pCloudDrive/** --exclude=/home/alastair/.pCloudDrive/** --exclude=/home/alastair/NAS_Multimedia_NFS/** --exclude=/home/alastair/Public_NFS_Share/** --exclude=home/alastair/SongKong/** --exclude=/home/alastair/perl5/** --protect-args /home/alastair/ admin@192.168.169.130:/share/homes/alastair/
    I think I may be in error with the full path as I think relative paths are used but the problem is mostly the pCloudDrive.
    Please could somebody help with this?

    Not getting much help here and none from pCloud. The pCloud Drive appears as a subdirectory in my home directory but in fact is a fuse file system linked to cloud storage. Beyond me I fear but if I cannot prevent it working with rsync on my home directory I have a problem. It should be possible to exclude the pCloud Drive from rsync but need help doing so please.

    I think I have it now. Apparently there is Fuse support for .gvfs so if I exclude .gvfs I also exclude the pCloud Drive Fuse system.
    So much for pCloud support!
