Proposal: Optimizing default filters

Post by mgutt »

Because I had some errors regarding files that were removed while the backup was running I added these two entries to the default filter list:
*\cache\
*\*.tmp

Maybe you like to optimize the default filter list.

*\Windows\Temp\ removed and *\Temp\ added. This is a more general rule ignoring much more temp Files.
