Hi Emmanuel,

The files/folders exclusions settings (for example C:\temp\* ) are applied on per-backup task basis. This means that if there are multiple VMs backed up within one backup task then files/folders exclusions will be applied to all these VMs. In order to apply exclusions to a single VM only, you'll need to create a separate backup task for this VM.

Thank you.
