    Since i do need to exclude some dirs from backups, due to limited backup space and a very large amount of data, I've found out about this new feature.

    So, I've edited conf file which is already present in all user dirs and added a line like this :


    That should be it, right ?

    But - now i see my server is choking up trying to gzip 320GB of data from that dir i just excluded from backup.

    So, any idea what i did wrong ?
