    Is it possible to exclude multiple directories using something like double asterixes (**)?

    For a path like:
    C:\User\<username>\<product>\<Product version>\<Product component>

    I'd like to be able to do a exception like:
    C:\User\**\<Product component>\*.*
    So everything in the product component directory is excluded regardless of the user, product or product version.

    I've found that I can do something like:
    C:\User\<username>\*\*\<Product component>\*.*
    but this is only useful if we have a fixed directory structure and we know how deep the known safe directory is.

    Hello,

    This type of function is not available as it could lead to malware being excluded from being scanned and detected.
