I have symlinks within my Wordpress codebase, and I do NOT want the targets of those symlinks backed up. Is there a way to NOT follow symlinks when using BackupBuddy?

Hi Joel,

Directory and file exclusions can be done in BackupBuddy's Settings page, so can set the symlink to be excluded from being backed up.
