    Hey All,

    I need a very specific bit of help, the client has a massive file system that uses 50% of the drive, and I'd rather not add a 2nd drive just yet. Is there anyway for me to backup everything server-wide that a full backup would do, except the file system? I can take care of the file system with just straight FTP for now.

    Anything you don't want backed up, put in /etc/cpbackup-exclude.conf . You can also add a cpbackup-exclude.conf to each account's home folder to indicate what in those accounts you don't want to back up.
