    Hi chaps

    We need to exclude about 100+ file extensions and locations from a certain range of machines here.

    Is there a way to import file exclusions based on wildcards in to a configuration? Most are *.extension. Some are IDNUMBER.*

    I've tried importing them in to "Windows Desktop v5 > Kernel > Settings > Exclusions " which has a great +List option to import from a list.

    However the wildcard file names and extensions I add there don't appear to be in the workstations config. THe folder exclusions are, and the specific file name exclusions are, but not the wildcard exclusions.

    Any ideas how I can import them easily?

    Olly

    Thanks, I saw that. The only thing is that wildcards aren't taken on by the client.

    You can add wildcard file entries, push the config to clients, wait for them to check in, take the config and deal with it, and then ask for a copy of their config.

    What you see is all the non-wildcard file entries and the folder entries, but none of the wildcard entries.
