I want to exclude iTunes downloaded movies from time capsule. I couldn't find it in the user/music directory.

I downloaded a rented movie tonight. Time machine ran while it was downloading and made a 1.5 gig backup. I transfered the movie without opening it, and b*gger me, time machine did another 1.5 gb back up the next hour!

I think they are in a folder called movies within the iTunes music folder, I would look but I'm on my phone.

Thanks guys.

Trouble is ~/Music/iTunes Music/Movies/ was empty as (As I had transfered the movie to my iPhone), but time machine still managed to find the reminants of the movie somewhere on the system (in a cache folder?) and backed up the whole 1.5 GB of a useles expired file!)

Oh well..
