If I back up C:\data\ and want to exclude C:\data\exclude\, should I specify the exclusion as \data\exclude or \exclude?

You can only exclude folders in a File and Folder backup and not in an Image backup or clone. When creating a File and folder backup the following dialog shows the folder 'C:\Data\exclude' excluded from the Folder 'C:\Data' when backing up:

Hope this helps

No longer true:
- Go to knowledgebase.macrium.com
- Search for: exclude

Or, google: macrium reflect exclude

Search results include:
"How to exclude files from a Disk Image"
https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW7/How+to+exclude+files+from+a+Disk+Image

This article explains how to set a Registry key that will exclude items from EVERY Disk Image backup, i.e., this method can't exclude items from some Backup jobs and not others.

That pertains to image backups.  Based on the original post, the screenshot, and the section of the forum this thread was created in, the OP is running F&F backups.
