Okay, one approach with the current version of LBackup is to do the following : (1) Set the backup source directory to "/" with the directive below : backupSource=/ (2) Add the following lines into the related excludes.txt + private + private/etc/*** + private/var/*** + home/*** - * Depending upon your system the example above may not work. It will depend upon the actual location of these files on your system. However, please keep in mind that if you use this kind of approach for your backups then you may find that in a future release of LBackup the backup integrity check feature which is added will not work correctly. Up until recently, I was not aware that the rsync excludes file could be used like this to add files as well as remove them. With that in mind, if you use this approach please check very carefully that all files you need to preserve are actually being backup. ---------------------------------- This email is protected by LBackup http://www.lbackup.org _______________________________________________ lbackup-discussion mailing list http://www.lbackup.org Change options or unsubscribe : http://lbackup.org/mailing_lists
