    Not sure if this is a known tip, but I noticed the "Exclude system files" option was missing from the Time Machine settings. Thinking they did away with this for simplicity, I went ahead and added the "System" folder to the excluded folders and the following dialog popped up.


    Very smart of Apple.

    This is an awesome tip. Honestly I thought it did this by default, but it does not. Thanks!
