How to exclude files from Time Machine backups

How to exclude files from Time Machine backups

Sometimes you don't want Time Machine to back up your files. Here's how to keep that from happening.

Time Machinee, Apple's built-in backup utility, is actually pretty smart about figuring out what to save and what to skip on your Mac.

It could be big but temporary files that would just eat up space, or private files you don't want duplicated anywhere, even for back up. Either way, with a few simple tweaks, you can more storage capacity out of your Time Machine backup disk and spend less time backing up, too.
