## Exclude specific directories from the backup
You can choose what should be backed up by adding the environment variable `SKIP`.
The available options are:
* `db`
* `uploads` (attachments)
* `repositories`
* `builds` (CI build output logs)
* `artifacts` (CI build artifacts)
* `lfs` (LFS objects)
* `pages` (pages content)
Use a comma to specify several options at the same time:
```
# use this command if you've installed GitLab with the Omnibus package
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:create SKIP=db,uploads
# if you've installed GitLab from source
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake gitlab:backup:create SKIP=db,uploads RAILS_ENV=production
```
## Upload backups to remote (cloud) storage
Starting with GitLab 7.4 you can let the backup script upload the '.tar' file it creates.
