Exclude files/folders from backup

Exclude files/folders from backup

It would be nice, if from the new "backup" feature would be extended by an exclude option.

A lot of programs store temporary files in the Documents folders, which doesn't need to backup.

The exclude option could go to the "mouse right click" menu. (also the exclude from sync, not only exclude from backup)

 

Thank you!

THIS!

Otherwise I may have to turn off the backup feature. I don't need to back up every big file in my Downloads folder

Thanks @Lusil ! I'm pretty optimistic that other people have this problem as well.
