File exclusions / inclusions

  • 1.  File exclusions / inclusions

    Posted 02-20-2018 14:21
    Is there a standard list of files to include or exclude for CrashPlan to backup or avoid? Does the list change based on organizations or user groups? For example, do executives and senior level managers have fewer restrictions than a normal user?

    Very interested in how other departments manage Code42.

    Thank you.

    We have a standard exclusion list for all devices

    We use a standard list of excludes.  The big ones to exclude are the hibernation and swap/ cache files.

    We have a standard list (see below).  At this time we don't differentiate the population.  Everyone gets the same settings.
    • ISO disk images
    • Virtual hard disk files
    • Outlook offline cache files
    • User Temp and Temporary Internet folders

    I'm lazy and didn't want to reinvent the wheel. I borrowed the list of exclusions set out by Stanford U and made a few changes to better fit our environment.

    We just stick with a global list. Sometimes we run into some issues especially with our engineering depts and dev depts with backing up folders that are used for development and did not need to backup. So there was a business case made and it was excluded globally.

    We use the standard set too but Gairy's link from Stanford is pretty cool!  Thanks for finding and sharing that!
