Exclude ~/Library/ in Mac GUI


I’d like to create a backup of my home folder, except for a few sub-folders. Most can easily be selected in the GUI, but since ~/Library/ does not normally show up in the Mac’s file browser, I can’t figure out how to exclude that (rather large) folder from my backups.

(Update: manual editing of the “filters” file did the trick, as workaround)


You can also select Include/exclude files and then enter -Library/.
