Hi Marco,


The following works for me.


$Conf{RsyncShareName} = {‘/Users’}, i.e. backup where the user folders are + to exclude the folders of Admin, Guest by $Conf{BackupFilesExclude} =  {‘*’ => [‘Admin/’,’Guest/’]}.


Hope it helps.

Thanks, but that isn't really what I wanted. I have since discovered that I can get the result I wanted by using --exclude=/* as an argument to rsync, however I'd still be interested to know whether the same can be done using only $Conf{RsyncShareName} and $Conf{BackupFilesExcude}.
(and my other questions still stand, too).
