Exclude database files from backup
I have some websites that have a big DB, but it do not change or change not often. I this case i do not need to backup it every day.
So i would like to exclude this DB files from backup to save the disk space.
Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

Not only databases but tables in a given database should be allowed to be excluded. I don't need to backup cache or search indexes data in my tables, and that takes most of the time. Time is money, because the longer it takes for the backup to end, the longer the shop goes laggy.
Please add possibility exclude one (or all) mysql databases from backup.
We have 300 GB database and tables are locked during backup. Customer complain for inaccessibility. Because there is no possibility exclude on (or more) databases, is not possible use Plesk internal backup :(
The ability to exclude database servers would be great.

The ability to exclude database servers would be great. I currently have RDS taking care of the backups and don't need Plesk to touch the DB (it runs into issues due to it being a large DB). The only way around is to have it exclude all user files as well which isn't desirable. I could just remove the DB from Plesk completely but it is nice having it in there for quick access.
