I am trying to use restic to back up my Windows 10 system.
I want to create an ‘exclude file’ for all the stuff I don’t want to back up.
First and foremost, I don’t want to backup the recycle bin. But I am having difficulties how to specify the match in my exclude file.
I am invoking restic like this:
restic -r myrepo backup -v -v -v --exclude-file=myexcludefile.txt c:\
But no matter what I put in the exclude file, I can’t keep it from going through the recycle bin.
Can anyone give me some real life exclude file segments for backing up your Windows system which actually work?
Thanks - Steven
