What files will SpiderOak never backup

SpiderOak will not backup shortcuts, aliases, 'symlinks' or placeholders for files that are located elsewhere on your system. These files will be 'greyed out' and cannot be selected in the 'Back Up' tab. SpiderOak will also not backup temp files or .swp files.
