As my home directory is larger that the max size allowed for an archive, I wanted to exclude a directory that has several TB of data (and do a separate archive for it).
When I created the home directory archive I selected
from the menu, and then in the dialog box under
Exclude:Specific Items
I dragged the directory (it was referenced from my home folder, so it listed as
UserName > ExcludeMe
for the directory. When I then had QRecall do it's initial capture, the entire directory was included. If It's of any help, the
folder is on a separate hard disk from the boot volume, i.e. it's mounted as:

Any ideas?

Things can get a little weird when your home folder isn't on the startup volume. However, in this case I can't see any reason why your setup shouldn't have worked.

I'd suggest we start by getting a diagnostic report (in the QRecall app, choose Hello > Send Report). That will allow us to examine the actual capture and exclude paths involved. I suspect we might send you a test version of QRecall to try.
