I do backups of /home and /etc to my zip drive pretty regularly.
Just recently /home got too big to fit onto the zip so I'm
excluding certain files.
I'm using the option "--exclude-from-file backup.excludes"
and the backup.excludes file looks like this:
Now the log shows that it doesn't seem to be backing up *~ or the
logs or any of the others, but it IS still backing up
which is about 15 mb of stuff I do -not- want to back up.
Anybody know why it's not working????
