Is it possible to exclude certain files like pagefile.sys in the bootcamp partition? im using the 3rd update of ATI 2021 and i can see these files being backed up even though ive tried excluding it via the exclude interface through mask and also by selecting the file

Hello Shion,

I suspect we can only exclude the whole Bootcamp partition here, however this needs to be tested. I see that you already have an open ticket and our engineers investigate the issue. Would you please share the results of the investigation here?

 The issue unfortunately still remains. The team seems to think that exclusions do work on bootcamp volumes and it technically needs to work: Page files and hibernate files are massive, which change very frequently. and it would be ridiculous to backup tens of gb every backup.

thank you for posting an update! Then we'll need to wait for results of the investigation from the RnD
