Files in excluded folders

I'm trying to backup jpg files in all folders EXCEPT ONE.  Should I keep my Backup settings to back up pictures AND, in addition, create a rule to exclude that one folder from being backed up?  Or will doing so create a conflict between (a) backing up ALL pictures and (b) not backing up pictures in the folder in question?  Thanks for your help.

Hi SJCguy,

Selecting the Pictures category will grab images across all the profiles on your computer. If you want to keep things simple, use the category and then use the Exclude Folder option to have it create the exclusion rule for you. It shouldn't create a conflict.

Alternatively If you have them stored in a single location and always keep them there you can simply select that folder instead. Then tell the service to exclude the one folder you're not interested in.
