10.7: Using two Time Machine backups
Authored by: Tantali on Sep 13, '11 10:05:36AM

Is there any possibility to change the Time Machine exclusions as well?
e.g. you have 2 backup locations, but one is rather small and the other one big, so you backup only essential files on the small one and everything on the large one.

Check the other hint, & use man tmutil to see the manual in the Terminal. It seems to be possible.

When using the command tmutil you have two options for setting exclusions. Either location-independent or fixed-path. See the man page for tmutil for all the details.

but a basic exclude from the command line would look like:

sudo tmutil addexclusion /Users/youruser/desktop/somefolder/
