create cron Backup files to skip Directory


We are hosting with rackspace cloud sites

we want to backup [url removed, login to view] files

we have a cron going for it that back up our files andoru DB.

We have no issue with oru DB backup.

The issue we having is to set up a cron that backup back up al files

Execpet a SWF folder that has 24GB of data.

We want to create a cron that exclude that Dir from the daily/weekly backup.

Problem: we do not know how to exclude a directory which has like 24GB

since cron backup can only last 15 min

so we have to exclude this dir

We have 2 tasks:

1. You change the cron to exclude that directory

Here is what rackspace has give us:

if your using tar to backup then --exclude PATTERN

exclude files based upon PATTERN


tar czf [url removed, login to view] /folder/to/backup --exclude /folder/to/exclude

* our IT manager does not know how to fix and make the cron looking for all files expect that dir

So your job is to rewrite the code so this cron backup will exclude that dir

so we can test and see all backup expect that dir.


p.s. we can enter all data you give us for testing

Thanks You
