How can we improve Azure Backup?

Exclusions based on minimatch patterns

I want to be able to exclude certain folders from backups by default and I want to be able to use wildcards to do it. Right now this is a nightmarish thing to do and the documentation is very scarce.

Examples:

c:\users\*\sources\repos\**\.git\
c:\users\*\sources\**\node_modules\
c:\users\*\sources\**\obj\
c:\users\*\sources\**\packages\
c:\users\*\sources\**\.vs\
c:\users\*\sources\workspaces\**\tf$\

c:\users\*\Dropbox*\
c:\users\*\OneDrive*\
c:\users\*\Google Drive*\

Having to manually configure these or to have scripts that try to continuously update the backup schedules on machines is madness.
