HyperBackup of Drive requires homes folders for backup

Postby BananaJoe » Wed Jan 03, 2018 11:51 pm

Just noticed that HyperBackup of Drive currently requires also the backup of all home folders. This is totally out of proportion!! For example if you have home directories of multiple users which are pretty large and which run until now on separate HyperBackup jobs for off-site backups.

Please really consider a fix for this, so that only the associated My Drive folders in the home directory are synced. In its current form, I turned off backups for Drive and Office. :(
