Hi! I recently stepped over kopia when looking for an alternative to the unmaintained BackInTime and I fell in love
For me, it took some time to figure out, what should be ignored in the backups. Of course, this surely depends a lot upon the use case. But I guess that there might be a typical set of files that can typically be ignored under Linux or Windows.
I post here the config I’m currently using to backup my home dir (both for Linux and Windows). Suggestions are welcome!
Have you thought about including typical configs you can easily as basis to create your own policies?
BTW: The policy “ignore well-known cache directories” is described by “ignore directories containing CACHEDIR.TAG and simliar”. What exactly is ignored when I set this to true?
