MacOS X Server Update 10.5.8 Does Not Fix Time Machine Backup Problem

|

The 10.5.8 update doesn’t appear to touch your custom StdExclusions.plist file if you updated it according to a previous post on this subject. But it also doesn’t fix the inherent problem.

The file I refer to is

/System/Library/CoreServices/backupd.bundle/Contents/Resources/StdExclusions.plist

and under “ContentsExcluded” is

/private/var/spool

the default location for the mail store. You’ll want to make sure that’s still commented out.
