My initial thought was that you should be including the trailing/closing slash ("\LocalCache*") but then the second screenshot suggests that you’re backing up a Windows computer, which has backslashes instead of forward ones,so perhaps try:
Let us know how it goes…know that it is working fine for me, but I was tired and lazy when setting up the exclusions - so just put both slash variants in…
Thanks for the advice. I’ve changed the exclusions to be as follows: C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Packages\*;/LocalCache/*;\LocalCache\*;*\LocalCache\*;*/LocalCache/*
I’ll cross my fingers and hope that this works.
If you’ve done a copy-paste of it, you missed the backslash after Users there…before the wildcard - but you can just use *\AppData\* to catch that foldername from anywhere in the path, so it’ll catch for all user folders anyway…
Sorry, a few things got messed up by markdown. I don’t want to exclude the entire AppData folder as it isn’t causing any problems and there could be important files in it. I will try that next though if this current set of rules doesn’t work.
Just thought that I’d add my exclusions - but bear in mind that I was tired when setting this up, and it is only for my personal Windows workstations…and therefore, I was just replicating forward with backslashes, and never bothered going back to it… *\$Recycle.Bin\*;*/$Recycle.Bin/*;*\AppData\*;*/AppData/*;*\WinSxS\*;*/WinSxS/*;*.ost;*\System Volume Information\*;*/System Volume Information/*;C:\_Movies\*;C:/_Movies/*;C:\Windows\CSC\*;C:/Windows/CSC/*;C:\_Lock\*;C:/_Lock/*;C:\Users\Me\Downloads\*;C:/Users/Me/Downloads/*;*\OneDrive - Company\*;*/OneDrive - Company/*;C:/Windows/Installer/*;C:\Windows\Installer\*;
