Exclude OST Files with B&R 9.5 U4b

Post by shepcon » Aug 13, 2019 7:39 pm

I'm using B&R 9.5 U4b in our VMware environment. One of the VMs is a terminal server running Windows Server 2016 with RDS role. Users have their Outlook profiles setup so there are large OST files in each profile, which I don't need and the backup jobs and offsite copy jobs are taking way too long with the extra bloat of the OST files.

Is there a way with B&R to exclude file types like OSTs from a backup job or copy job?

Thanks for any input.
Ken

Hi Ken! I'd suggest to review this article and you can also exclude the whole disk with OST files from processing if you have no other critical data on the disk. Please let us know if you have some questions. Thanks!

Thanks. I don't have Enterprise or Enterprise Plus licensing so I don't have that exclusion tab.

Then potentially you can place all the OST files on a separate volume that you exclude from backup? ... Or Update to Enterprise Edition.
