10.5: Leave certain newsgroup files out of Time Machine
Authored by: ClunkClunk on Nov 16, '07 11:04:10AM

If you use Unison, you can also exclude Unison's caches out of your backups. Unison downloads the headers and other information for each newsgroup you open, and this can take up unneeded space.
Just exclude ~/Library/Application Support/Unison/your.news.provider

Thanks Clunk Clunk. I noticed my backups were huge, but it took me a while to figure out that it was because I'd been using Unison lately.
