Windows version - exclude common system folders automatically?

Hi, Just noticed that a backup I have configured to the root of a drive on a Windows Server was busy indexing the "\$RECYCLE.BIN" folder.

There's no point, usually anyway, backing up this folder. Would it be possible to have a default option which might automatically populate "Excluded Folders" with the common Windows system areas. Another candidate would be the "\System Volume Information" folder.

That is a good idea and should be in the Windows GUI version only. When a root drive is selected as the repository, those two directories should be automatically put into the exclude list.

I'll plan this for the next version (2.0.3).
