I'm using Windows 8 file history and noticed that on my laptop, it's copying an extra drive's contents onto the backup share (the $OF drive). My laptop has a 8gb SSD, so I'm assuming it's this data, perhaps? How can I exclude this data from the backup, as there are about 3000 folders it's creating (and growing).

You can configure it by navigating to Control Panel > File History. Click on the Clean up versions(see image below).

These aren't old files, though. These are just a ton of files on a caching SSD drive. – Ryan Peters Aug 4 '13 at 15:33
