    Hello,
    I was wondering if there is a way to see which files were actually backed up during the last backup? There is a .Backup.log file in every folder but it doesn't contain a file list.
    This list would help me build a better ignore list.
    Thanks,
    matej

    Not sure there is one. My system.log only shows this as an example:
    Oct 30 11:07:24 Selma2 /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd[1158]: Copied 516 files (1.1 MB) from volume Macintosh HD.
    Oct 30 11:07:24 Selma2 /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd[1158]: No pre-backup thinning needed: 345.1 MB requested (including padding), 197.30 GB available
    Oct 30 11:07:25 Selma2 /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd[1158]: Copied 284 files (887 KB) from volume Macintosh HD.
    Oct 30 11:07:27 Selma2 /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd[1158]: Starting post-backup thinning
    Oct 30 11:07:27 Selma2 /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd[1158]: No post-back up thinning needed: no expired backups exist
    Oct 30 11:07:27 Selma2 /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd[1158]: Backup completed successfully.



    No mention of what files were copied.
