What files to exclude when using rsync
I am trying to create a complete backup of a system (SuSE 9.1) using rsync to a usb drive. I gather there are some linux files and directories that should be excluded from a complete backup. Can anyone point me to a good and complete list of files/directories that should be excluded? So far, I understand that the following should be excluded:
/media/usb-storage --> This is my usb drive itself
I'm using SuSE 9.1 so is there anything else that shouldn't be backed up when using rsync?
