Finding it hard to do full Snapshot

Hi, I am finding it difficult to do a full snapshot as I have a lot of media most of which (after it is uploaded to my site) does not change.

Does Snapshot Pro allow me to:
- just make a snapshot of certain directories e.g. wp-content/uploads/[some media upload folder] and
- exclude that folder from subsequent snapshots

I am looking for a way of backing up my media files (organised by year and month) by year and after that year is finished, not backing up that media again.

I hope that makes sense. The general idea is to not backup media folders that aren't changing any more.

    Hey Glenn !
    Hope you are having a great day!

    You can exclude the files you don't want to backup in a Snapshot. You have two options for that.

    1. Global File Exclusions: You can find this in Snapshot>Settings. Using Global File Exclusions, you can set the files/directories you don't want to include in your Snapshot backups. Please note, this setting will exclude your files/directories from all the Snapshots you take. Here's a screenshot for reference:

    2. What Files to Archive: This setting is available per Snapshot. While setting up a Snapshot, you'll be able to include/exclude your desired files or folders. Here's a screenshot for reference:

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further assistance regarding this. Thanks!
