Backblaze for Aperture Library only #1

I am thinking of using Backblaze for backing up just my Aperture Library and perhaps iPhoto library as well. It seems to only work by listing exclusions which would prove rather a tedious listing of every other folder on the Mac.

Has anyone used Backblaze for just such a purpose and is there a way of using it that is less labour intensive than the method I have described?

Patrick,

Just add all user folders to the exclusion list, i.e. ~/Desktop, ~/Documents, etc. — there aren’t many. If your Aperture Library is in ~/Photos, then I’d put everything else in Photos another folder, i.e. ~/Photos/Photo/ and exclude that directory too.

But no, there’s no “just backup this” option.
