Files to be excluded from the backup
Some files should essentially be excluded from the backup:
- various caches - especially browser caches
- files from the recycle bin (Recycler)
- temporary files
- core files
- software installations
Files of this type should be excluded from the backup with suitable "include-exclude-statements" since a backup is neither necessary nor reasonable but these files still occupy resources (especially storage resources) of the backup server. Further information on "include-exclude-lists" and examples can be found in the documents for advanced training events (transparencies, script).
