Hi, I thought that skipping the first High Sierra release would also skip start-up bugs, but .... After installation of 10.13.1 on my iMac and macbook pro, both started to backup the entire disk, ignoring the exclude lists. In the nick of time I could prevent my TimeCapsule from spilling over. I had to delete both sparsebundles and opened the options to edit the exclude list. But it was still there. I clicked on SAVE and restarted backups. To my surprise only 49Gb (the system only plus my documents and sources) was backup up now. I'm disappointed with such behaviour of High Sierra; I fear this is only the start .... ;JOOP!
