Hello,

I have sites with many images and I would like to know if BackupBuddy have option to not backup image thumbnails from upload folder (like BackWPup)?
Or if you don't have will you add it?

After restoring site I could regenerate all thumbnails with e.g http://wordpress.org/plugins/ajax-thumbnail-rebuild/.

Excluding thumbnails from backup will make backup filesize to be around 50% of the full backup.

Best regards

Hi Matrixik,

Are the thumbnails physical files? If so then yes can exclude them, especially if the thumbs are in their own subdirectory.


Thanks,

Hello,

they are not in separate folder.
Allow me to put quote here from BackWPup support forum:
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-backwpup-ideas-excluding-intermediate-images-conditional-scheduled-backup

Quote

Exclusion of intermediate images
As you are probably aware, when you upload an image in WordPress, it generates several intermediate sizes defined at Media Settings screen and/or with custom code.
I propose that you add an option to exclude those intermediate images from backup and to backup only original, full sized images. One can later regenerate those intermediate sizes with some of available plugins.
List of intermediate images can be got by getting all attachments and passing array of sizes (got via get_intermediate_image_sizes()) to image_get_intermediate_size() function.

Best regards

Hi Matrixik,

Those thumbnails are not currently exclude-able automatically. But to be able to do so has been added as a feature request.

Hi Matrixik,

Nope, not a way that I know of.
