NOTE  This page is only available to teams on metered Workplace plans. Backup is not available for Unlimited plans.

On the Backup Exclusions page, you'll control the extensions, folder paths, and file paths that are excluded from backups. Files types and paths that are excluded will not be backed up for any users on your team.

We've already selected, by default, the file types and paths that we recommend excluding in order to avoid unnecessary use of storage and bandwidth. These exclusion lists are customized for both Mac and Windows operating systems.
