Good morning sir,
sorry for the late.
There isn't this possibility in Uranium Backup. Anyway, these kind of files are hidden files.
So you can exclude them by General Options|Hidden and system files.
Or, if the problem persists, you can copy only net file in a dedicated backupset and put flag on Shadow Copy function "Ignore if they are system or hidden file".
If the problem persists, please contact our technical support.
Thank you
