Is it possible to exclude the folder administrator/components/com_akeebabackup/backup to be removed from the backup ?

As I have an external folder , where I can find all the zip of backup , is it possible to remove automaticly the copies of bakups in this folder ?


Thank for your help

Akeeba Backup will automatically exclude the current output folder for backups. If your output folder is something different than the default one, you have to manually add it inside the exclusion list
