Backing up wrong files
I'm using Desktop edition
to do a hybrid backup to a NAS and Gsuite drive. I've noticed spending A LOT of time trying to backup a directory that's not selected in the backup plan. (C:\program files\itunes). It spent over 7 hours yesterday backing up that directory alone - it's less than 200MB). I've double checked and that directory is definitely not checked. It also shows in the excluded list when it shows the summary just before saving the plan. I've tried stopping/restarting the service, even rebooting several times, but every time it start backing up those files again, and the plan never finishes.

Thanks. Just sent diagnostics.
I created a ticket and had several updates. I now cannot access my tickets - i get the message no user when I try to log in.
that should be "no such user" of course.
A bit of an update on this one: looks like there were some issues with records in local database, so repository synchronization fixed the issue, judging by the communication in our ticket system.
