The first time I backed up LR Classic 11 the program, and a lot of other "stuff" including the zip file of pictures was backed up.  What can I get rid of there?

What other "stuff"? Please be more specific.

 

The 'Backup' procedure in v10 that is set to occur when you exit Lr-Classic will save the YourCatalogName.LRCAT file in the Backup ZIP file. In the latest Version-11 of LrC this has changed slightly to also now include a new file - YourCatalogName.LRCAT.LRDATA  that holds information about the new Masking edits.

So, now with v11, the Backup ZIP contains two files-  ...LRCAT  and  ...LRCAT.LRDATA

It DOES NOT BACKUP ANY PHOTO FILES (Pictures) ..!! That is your responsibility using methods outside of LrC.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.0.1, Photoshop 23.0.2, Lightroom 5.0, Bridge 12.0, Windows-10.

I would just add that it's important to backup the Settings folder as well, since it contains presets, watermarks, etc... and is not backed up by LrC.
