[resolved] Feature request: exclude cache folder (6 posts)

    Hi,

    Liking the simplicity of the plugin, I would like to ask that it automatically excludes /wp-content/cache/ and all its sub-folders (if they exist) from any backup.

    There are a few caching plugins around that create this folder and store a huge amount of files there that really do not need to be in any backup! These files constantly change and unable to exclude any folders, these take up much resources (both time and space) for nothing.

    Thanks!

    Even if this is to your business disadvantage, I hope you fulfill this wish.

    RavanH, in case you are interested, I inserted the following line after line 948 of idrive-for-wordpress/idrive.php (version 1.0.7)

    if ( preg_match('/wp-content\/cache/', "$dir".DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR."$entry" ) ) continue; // skip wp-content/cache folder
