10.5: Show files that Time Machine does not back up
Authored by: bnetz on Aug 09, '08 02:39:13AM
when i use the command
sudo mdfind "com_apple_backup_excludeItem = 'com.apple.backupd'"

i get this list:
/Users/xy/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml
/Users/xy/Music/iTunes/Album Artwork/Local
/Users/xy/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
/Users/xy/Pictures/iPhoto Library/iPod Photo Cache

(no more!)

how can i exclude the other default-folders? i am mostly interested in excluding the spotlight-database from backup, i feel that this generates a lot of traffic/hd-load ... thx in advance
