Exclude folders for a Linux VM backup

Post by ssandoz »


I have a big Linux VM I need to backup but some folders must be excluded from the backup.
First I have created a new backup job for this VM, I have enabled Application aware processing and I have define which folders to exclude in the Exclusions tab.
During the first run of the job, I noted that file exclusions were skipped.
Looking at the documentation, I realized that this option was only available for NTFS files.

So could you provide me another way to backup this VM without excluded folders?

Thanks in advance for your support.

Can you move unneeded folders to a separate virtual disk and exclude it from processing? Thanks!
