Could many Windows users put working examples of what they have in their exclude-file? I’m just another grey haired user, former programmer, trying to figure out a way that actually works to exclude C:$RECYCLE.BIN and any other drives $RECYCLE.BIN. Do I need to double the $ to $$?
Does having \temp in the exclude-file mean that on any drive the \temp will be excluded?
Windows is not case sensitive but restic seems to be. On Windows to the excludes have to be in the exact correct case? There is a iexclude option but no iexclude-file option.
