I am trying to figure out how to create a compressed backup and being able to exclude some large VMware folders.
I looked at the scripts you can exclude but it does not seem to compress.

Is there a way to do both compression and exclusion?

thanks for your help

I'm not sure I follow, Alex. What's not "compressing"? The only way to "compress" a SuperDuper! backup is by using a read-only image, and I strongly recommend not doing that... note that you need about 2x the space of the backup to create the compressed version.
