Is there any way to exclude subfolders when sizing a file system?

I'm trying to size my home folder at work, which has a hidden directory (.snapshot) that contains links to hourly/daily/weekly/monthly backups of my entire home folder. It's a virtual folder that doesn't count towards my quota, so I don't want ODS to scan it. As you can imagine, ODS takes a long time sizing this folder. In fact, I've never been patient enough to wait the several+ hours it takes for ODS to scan my backup folder, thus, I've never had an ODS scan of my home folder complete.

I'm hoping there's some magic disksweeper exclude file I can include in the root of a folder, or some other mechanism, to prevent ODS from scanning a folder.
