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).

Did this feature end up making it in? I didn't see it in the release notes.

I'll add this feature to the coming 2.1.0 version (which should be available by the end of next week).

Are you aware that Windows provides its own exlusion list at
It would be great if duplicacy would honour that list by default...

I didn't know that before. Those look like good candidates for populating the exclude pattern list when backing up an entire drive.
