Maybe this is a simple solution but I cannot seem to find it. With TWRP I have the option to backup system/apps without backing up the data. This is great because it doesn't backup the 5GB of cached Google Music songs. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to do this with CWM. I've been digging through the CWM settings and see no way to backup the ROM without backing up data as well.

Is there a way to do this that I'm just not seeing?

Thanks for any help!

Why not use Philz touch advanced cwm?

Because I was not aware of its existence. Thanks for the heads up. I installed it and it solved the problem perfectly.

That answered absolutely nothing. Thank you for being useless.
