Backup user files suppress system files from a clone


I made a clone and update it every month or so using "Backup - All files" with smart update. At the same time, I have a scheduled script running twice a day to backup only my user files. For this script I logically select "Backup - User files" and exclude some big folders which do not change frequently. This stategy to have a daily backup of my work which would take much less time that the Backup all files.

The problem is that the "Backup - User files" script keeps on deleting all other files on the hard drive. I end up with only the user folder on the backup drive. What I'm looking for is to have a complete clone with only the user folder updated daily. Am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks, Stéphane
