I do not only backup my courses but most of the content of my htdoc dir on my server plus mysql dumps every night. In Moodle Version 1.9.x I excluded some directories in /moodledata (e.g. tmp) to keep this sort of backup small.
I am now wondering if I can exclude /moodledata/trashdir too. Or, to phrase the question differently: Is /moodle + /moodledata without trashdir + the mysql dump enough to restore a Moodle 2 installation after a server-crash?
What is the trashdir directory in moodledata good for anyway (the "funny" Moodle 2 filenames make it hard to guess)?
Thank you very much,
