Hi all,

I am using Backuppc, installed on a Linux server, to backup one of my Raspberry Pi.

I've configured the host as you see here:

But, when I run my full backup, I can still see the /mnt folder and its files into it:

What am I doing wrong?

Why is BackupFilesExclude Override ticked?

To be clear: you should clear the Override checkbox under BackupFilesExclude. Having it ticked causes the rules to be overridden  (i.e. ignored). Did you notice that you also got /dev/ in your backup?

The trick was to add the wildcard (*) as in screenshot
