    Hi I am a little confuse about using the correct format.
    In the example below I have files and subfolders under c:\test\programs\appl1 and also under c:\test\programs\appl2\

    What is the correct format to exlude all files, and all subfolders, and also all files in this subfolders in c:\test\programs\appl2\ ??

    and when do I use only one * as wild card?



    c:\test\programs\appl1\
    c:\test\programs\appl1\file_one.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl1\file_two.mdb
    c:\test\programs\appl1\subfolder_one\
    c:\test\programs\appl1\subfolder_one\file_one.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl1\subfolder_one\file_two.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl1\subfolder_two\
    c:\test\programs\appl1\subfolder_two\file_one.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl1\subfolder_two\file_two.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl2\
    c:\test\programs\appl2\file_one.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl2\file_two.mdb
    c:\test\programs\appl2\subfolder_one\
    c:\test\programs\appl2\subfolder_one\file_one.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl2\subfolder_one\file_two.doc
    c:\test\programs\appl2\subfolder_two\
    c:\test\programs\appl2\subfolder_two\file_one.exe
    c:\test\programs\appl2\subfolder_two\file_two.doc

    When you set exclusions in the resident scanner can use special symbols (wildcards such as "* "and "?").

    Examples:
    To exclude all files in a folder, type the path to the folder and use the mask "*.*".
    To exclude doc files, use the mask "*. doc".
    If the name of an executable file has a certain number of characters (and characters vary) the first and only known with certainty (eg, "D"), use the following format: "D o_O?. exe" . The question marks replace the missing characters (unknown).
