In short what I’m asking is if anybody has some list of exclusions for doing backups of a full C:\ partition (let’s say for windows 10).
Background: even a small SSD windows installation with a few programs and user documents will still have hundreds of thousands of files. To make it worse some are changing all the time (candy crush updates?! WTF). Now I know pointing rclone to c: isn’t the best thing, I know there might be open files, I know with so many files I’d better use duplicati, duplicity (or some other commercial backup software) but I really like the simplicity of rsync/rclone backups (yes, they are really nice incremental backups if --backup/backup-dir option is used wisely).
As I’m lazy and distracted and I know myself - any line I put there I’ll have to trial-error it 15 times to get it right - in case anybody is doing it already can you paste your config? No explanations needed, I know there will be a few things specific to your setup.
