The Desktop
Authored by: hamarkus on Aug 04, '08 07:40:09AM

As it acts as my downloads folder...
(Currently, I occasionally go through my Desktop folder in the TM interface and delete stuff from there. Excluding the Desktop folder would unfortunately also exclude two folders which reside there permanently.)

The Desktop

You could make the permanent items aliases and store the actual items in your Home folder. So that the items get backed up but the Desktop can be excluded.

Just drag holding Command & Alt to create an alias of the item.
