QUESTION  How can I find out exactly which files are excluded from backup?

I know paths and folders can be excluded from backup by my administrator on the Policy Defaults page in Workplace Online, or using the Workplace app Backups tab function in the Workplace app.

NOTE  Exclusions are cumulative, so the exclusions you configure via the Workplace app are added to the ones selected or configured in Workplace Online.

How can I find out which actual files are being excluded?

ANSWER  Just find your log files.

  1. Locate your log files as described in Find Your Workplace app log files
  2. Unzip the log files that have been placed on your desktop.
  3. Open exclusions.xml. This file lists all backup exclusions.
