  • Hi,

    Have you tried using the exclude files when modifying or creating a protection group?

  • Hello Leon,

    Thanks for your reply

    1. The Exclude option is not available in Hyper-V Cluster Selection.

    2.  I think it will be only available for file\folder backups. and in that also it allows only "file types" or Extensions not the path of the file.

  • Did you restart the server after the registry fixes above? As for most registry changes it requires a restart.

  • Did you ever get this to work?  I'd like to exclude folders on a Hyper-V guest.  Is the FilesNotToBackup key for that?

  • I never got this to work.  I'm not using a cluster.  I'd like to exclude an entire drive in the Hyper-V guest that is used as a data store for SQL/Exchange/etc.
