    How would I go about excluding a specific directory from the nighly backups and how would I force a backup to run?

    Thanks!

    You can force a backup by doing /scripts/cpbackup and deleting the prior backup before hand.

    I don't know of anyway to exclude a certain directory from being backed up.

    To exclude a user you could remove them from /etc/passwd temporarily, but probably not a good idea :)
