Deploying a custom back up set for use as default

Is there a way to create a custom back up set  that I can use as the default? I don't want pics or videos to be backed up as well as a file size limit.

You may create a custom backup set with your own rules for a specific folder or set of folders.


Here is a link to our knowledge base with instructions on how to create a custom backup set.
