/var/named/chroot/proc needed?

Is this folder needed? It screws up my backup job royally. I don't know whats up with it, but its just a really weird folder.

That folder alone is like 1TB when I back it up, even though the real one is not that big - its only 23MB.

Is there a way to exclude this from rsync, or can I just delete it?

How about --exclude?

Something like --exclude='/var/named/chroot/proc/*'. There are even examples in man rsync for you.

I never had good luck with that.

The path I specify, does it have to be the FULL path, or just the relative path reletive to where I start the backup from? There's also a way to set an exclude file, how exactly does it work?
