I installed this plugin, proceeded to WPBD2D -> Backup Settings and under Excluded Files and Directories clicked the Exclude None button. I then deselected a few folders, specifically a cache folder (
wp-content/cache/) that I knew had 150mb+ of stuff that I didn't need to backup. I then went to WPBD2D -> Backup Log and started a manual backup.
When the backup seemed to take longer than I expected, I started checking which files were being backed up by clicking View uploaded files and I discovered that the cache folder that I had deselected was actually being uploaded.
Is there a bug with the Excluded Files and Directory feature?
