    Is there any plan to exclude files or folders by endings or other criteria, like that was in Plesk 8.x? Like *.png would exclude all ong's from backup?

    I don't know about command line, as I never used it, but Plesk up to 8.6 I could set exclude folder in GUI backup program and exclude as wildcard, so I could exclude all my big folders, backup folder etc.

    Not as the GUI program (separate from web plesk) is gone, I have no option to exclude files or folders (not domains!).

    Any way to get this back so I can upgrade my servers to 9.2?

    There is no any possibility to exclude files/directories from backup not via GUI and not via CLI backup utility. You can exclude only whole domains/clients.

    jerry2,

    This functionality will be necessarily returned. Developers just had not time to make it yet.

    Thanx. This was a great functionality as on big sites I have to exclude some folders else I'd have a 25GB backup every day. Please return this in the next Plesk.
