Cpanel Backup nfs directories?

    Does anyone know if the cPanel backup that runs nightly will backup an NFS mount within a user's home directory?

    I have a user using lots of disk space, and we have skipped his account in the nightly backups. We have since moved 98% of his high disk usage to an NFS server, and just have a directory within his web site mounted on the NFS server.

    I would like to return to backing up his cPanel account, but I don't want the cpbackup script to backup that one directory within his site.

    So if the cpabackup routine will recognize the directory is an NFS mounted directory and skip it, that would be cool.

    Anyone have experience with this?
