This is awesome.
For anyone wondering how to get into the .bzpkg folder, the user needs to:
Go to the root Library folder, right-click the Backblaze.bzpkg , and click “Show Package Contents”

@jsonmaur thanks for this. Do you know if I need to restart backblaze or re-source this xml file for the new excludes to take effect? My backblaze is still backing up node_modules even though I have the exclude rules setup.

@celsowhite: Each line is lacking contains_2="*" property, therefore is invalid (as per Backlaze's docs)

Rule 3: An excludefname_rule must specify all criteria. Use "*" to skip criteria.

For each line to be valid, all of the properties below must be specified:

  • plat
  • osVers
  • ruleIsOptional
  • skipFirstCharThenStartsWith
  • contains_1
  • contains_2
  • doesNotContain
  • endsWith
  • hasFileExtension

Thanks for the info @knikel. Looks like they updated their format since I set this up--those values weren't required before. I'll make the necessary changes.

With skipFirstCharThenStartsWith="users/", that would mean it only works for files under /users/?

@Svish Yes I believe so. The article linked in my first comment briefly mentions that it improves performance.
