About folders that are excluded by default from file and folder backups

The following folders and their contents are excluded automatically from file and folder backups:

  • Windows folder

  • Program Files folder

  • Temporary folder

  • Temporary Internet Files folder

These folders are typically not used for storing personal files or folders. However, they are backed up when you define and run a drive-based backup of your system drive (typically C).

Defining a file and folder backup

You can include these folders when you define a file and folder backup.
