    I am using Acronis Trueimage v11 that I bought a few years ago. But it has a known bug in it..where I am unable to exclude a folder and all the files in it.

    Does this version Paragon FREE backup have ability to ignore a certain folder from the backup image?

    I have a folder which contains 120GB of my home videos that I DO NOT WANT to backup into the Windows Vista backup image.

    Is it possible to exclude c:/videos and all the files in it?

    Cheers.

    I had a quick look and in the backup wizard advanced settings there is a method to exclude but I don't have time to play with it to see exactly how it works but it looks promising. Since it's free and you can use your existing imaging tool to get back to where you started if it doesn't meet your needs there is little risk in trying it.

    I tend to keep all of my data files on a different partition or disk or network share so my C image tends to be only the OS and apps - just my preference.

    Any reason why you don't try it yourself?

    It works fine for me.- excluding a folder and the files inside.

    It does not appear to be able to do that with nested sub folders.
