Acronis 2018 True Image Backup excludes OneDrive folders by default

If you are running Acronis 2018 True Image and are using Microsoft OneDrive to store files then do be aware that those files will not be backed up as OneDrive is excluded from your backups by Acronis.

Acronis Development Team are working on a solution for backing up OneDrive folders but in the meantime, these folders are excluded from backup to ensure backup consistency (both in new and existing backups). Please be aware that even if OneDrive folders are not listed in the list of exclusions, they are still excluded from backup source.

For more information on this issue, please refer to this Acronis knowledge base website link

The easy way to resolve this issue is to upgrade to Acronis 2019 True Image which has resolved the issue.
