Question [Q] Excluding Specific Apps from Titanium Backup Schedules

Hi,

How can we put a negative filter on Titanium Backup so that it excludes specific apps instead of selecting for it (as does the default positive filter)?

For example, I want to exclude Seek Droid from TB's "Backup New Apps" schedule, so that I will back up everything that's been recently installed, but not Seek Droid.

Thanks!

Sorry for bad english.

I would also like to do this. I have one app that I'd like to exclude from my scheduled backups. There seems to be an option in TB to create a negative filter, but I haven't figured out how to use it yet. Anyone have a walkthrough?

To exclude apps with the help of a filter.

- Start Titanium Backup
- Touch the Search-icon
- Touch the Funnel-icon (in the upper right corner)
- Scroll down and and create a label
- Check the box where it sez something like "reverse order" or smth (my locale is swedish), the box is on the same line as the "Create label"-button.
- Go to the Apps-list, longpress an app and assign a label

Now it should be possible to use a filter to exclude an app in a scheduled or manual backup


[EDIT]
Heh, i think my fingers was faster than my brain there, the box you can check is ofc only for excludning labels in the search.. not excludning filters when you schedule a backup.. this is what happens whan you write a "walkthrough" before you test it..

Only other way, I can think of, is to make a label the same way as described and then simply exclude that app from that label, and then remember to add every app to the label every time you install a new one.

Create a label and select the apps you want to exclude from the backup (using "Add/remove elements" when editing the label). Enable the label and then click the "Inverse (exclude labels)" checkbox. Configure the other filter settings as desired then save the filter and use it for your backups.

Default Works for one time backups, not scheduled backups.

This method does work but it won't allow you to automate the backups while excluding certain apps.

I am trying to automate moving user apps to the sd card once a week. Some apps however need to be on the internal memory for the widget to work; pandora, shazam, tiny flashlight, google music*, etc.
I was trying to label these certain apps to be excluded from internal user apps that can be selected in the schedule. So far i have run out of ideas.
I would love this to be implemented into the app, and I'll be writing a review onto the play store.

If anyone has a work around I'd appreciate it.

Does not really work. I excluded one app (Google Music) and it just backups this one!
Very annoying, that such a simple feature is missing...

I totally agree that this should be added. It should be trivial.
Not having such a simple feature lowers the value of custom filters a great lot, and of the app itself as well.
