How can I exclude folders, files, or certain extensions from being backed up in System Protection's Restore Points and deleted or reverted by System Restore?
I know that
My Documents folder wasn't included by default in Windows XP, and I'd like to add other folders to the exclude list as well (e.g.
c:\workshop). Now in Windows 8 anything and everything in the root of
c:\ gets backed up, and restored. It was really inconvenient when I had to restore last time and I lost all my recent work in the
c:\workshop folder. And since I did the restore from safe mode it didn't create a roll-back restore point either. So I'd like to add certain folders if possible, rather than move my stuff elsewhere altogether.
I faintly remember reading about such thing being possible through command line in windows 7, along with changing the default backup location and other things, but can't find anything now or specifically for Windows 8.
