Borg backup exclude nextcloud contents and get noticed if backup failed

My YunoHost server

Hardware: computer
YunoHost version: x.x.x
I have access to my server : Through SSH, through the webadmin
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

Description of my issue

It’s been a year or so that I use borg to backup my server to a remote one, and all works great. A big thank you to all the people that made this possible :slight_smile:

But today, I was checking the backups on the backup server, and noticed that for the last two month nothing has been backed up.
I think this is due to the fact that the size of the backup has passed the quota I set on the target server.

To solve this issue, I was wondering:

  • is there a way I could exclude some directories from the borg backup? (I know I can exclude apps, but I would prefer for example not to exclude nextcloud, but just it’s contents. Does this make sense?),
  • what could I do to get an alert when borg fails to perform the backup (for example yunohost sending an email to the admin).

Thanks a lot for any suggestions :slight_smile:
