UpdraftPlus – Exclude WordPress-Generated Image Thumbnails From Backups

Updraft - Exclude IMage Thumbnails From Backups

I had a call this week with a client who manages a few WordPress sites. One of the things they do, like me, is backup files. The plugin they chose for their workflow is UpdraftPlus. The client hosts all of their clients’ websites on one server, so storage space has become an issue. Fortunately, I was able to create a simple solution to mitigate the problem by excluding image thumbnails from automated backups.
