Avoiding temporary internet filesgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Anders Petersson's Freeware Forum : One Thread
I could back up 90% of my everyday personal data by doing a
SOURCE: C:\Documents and Settings\User Name DESTINATION: H:\My Backup (my example)
It would be efficient, quick, and oh so easy, if Microsoft hadn't chosen to put the Temporary Internet Files folder a couple of layers down in this structure. In my case, it's close to 100,000 files that I never want to backup an bogs down the whole simple process. Has anyone figured out a clever way around this? Anders, would it ever be possible to be able to do an EXCLUDE on a folder name?
I love the program, particularly having it delete files on the destination disk that ar no longer on the source disk. Thanks for the great work.

I don't think there is a way around it. But I agree that some kind of folder exclution would be nice. I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the idea.

Bill, You could always change the Temporary Internet Files folder to a new location. Internet Properties ... Temporary Internet Files ... Settings ... Move Folder. That's what I Have done. Don
