Microsoft Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM)

To avoid unnecessarily high data change rates and excessive use of network bandwidth, the Microsoft Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) repository temporary files need to be excluded from the backup.

LiveVault automatically excludes the WBEM repository temporary files.

The WBEM repository temporary files directory is specified in the registry entry:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM value Repository Directory 

This is commonly:


For example, if the Repository Directory value is C:\Winnt\system32\wbem\repository\, create the exclusion:

Exclude C:\Winnt\system32\wbem\repository\*.*.bak

In the tree view on the Backup Selection tab, you will see the icon for the automatically excluded files. Parent directories of the automatically excluded files are marked with one of the "partially excluded" icons, either (if a parent directory is selected), or (if a parent directory is not selected).
