No, exceptions and other site preferences aren't part of Sync. Sync isn't meant as a backup, but is meant to sync data between other connected devices. You should always backup your personal data yourself.

Wish they let us export the list.

I will be sure to backup my profile next time I nuke Windows :)

Thanks!
