I am backing up a site including a huge cache folder use SFTP (FileZilla).I do not really need to backup the wp-cache directory, but do not want to get rid off it either atm. Is there a way to use (S)FTP or SCP to backup / copy a site with all files and folders minus one folder and its content? I can really live without a backup of the cache folder and it would save me a lot of time if I could backup the site without that directory.

Try using a filename filter in FileZilla.

Other FTP/SFTP clients may have similar functionality.
