Time Machine directory exclusion

This very simple but useful tip. I usually don't backup my "/Documents/Microsoft User Data" or "/Documents/Virtual Machines" folder.

 

From the Terminal

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine \ SkipPaths -array-add “PATH-ONE” “PATH-TWO”

From the GUI

Open System Preferences > Time Machine > Options.
