[resolved] Backup of main site on shared hosting grabbing everything (8 posts)

    I have shared hosting with Blue Host. The backup of my main site appears to grab everything in my account (all sites), so it’s huge - 6GB. Is the solution to add Exclusions for all the other site folders? Or is there an easier way?

    I noticed this behavior recently after the most recent plugin update, so hopefully a fix can be implemented for the next update.

    is your main site directly under the root, and other sites in subfolders?

    That is correct, Paul. I have since added Exclusions for all those subfolders. This has reduced the size dramatically. I don't know if this is the right way to do it.
