Hello, I believe with .dump, one can specify a list of tables. For such, and backup, it seems not possible to exclude. Or is it? Or might such be considered? I'm unsure of what others might find such useful, but for me, as I keep rotated backups, and they can accumulate in size, excluding FTS that can be rebuilt would save a lot of space. With backup, I can drop a table yet maybe the backup time and needed space during would be quicker and less.
