    I follow this..
    http://www.sbsfaq.com/Lists/FAQs/DispForm.aspx?ID=137

    Server Folder Exclusions
    The exclusions listed here should be applied to your SBS server, and where applicable to other servers that host similar applications in your domain.


    Exchange related Exclusions
    First up you need to be aware, that the default installation of CSM for SMB v3.0 will exclude the Exchange database folders from file level scanning. Therefore I am NOT recommending including these in your exclusions. However there are some other Exchange related exclusions that you need to add to ensure that things operation smoothly.

    Listed below are the items and their default locations - your installation may be different.

    Exchange Server Database = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mdbdata (see note above)
    Exchange MTA files = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mtadata
    Exchange Message tracking log files = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\server_name.log
    Exchange SMTP Mailroot = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot
    Exchange working files = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mdbdata
    Site Replication Service (not normally used in SBS but should be excluded anyway) = C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\srsdata
    C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Conndata

    IIS related Exclusions
    IIS System Files = C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv
    IIS Compression Folder = C:\WINDOWS\IIS Temporary Compressed Files

    Domain Controller related exclusions
    Active Directory database files = C:\WINDOWS\NTDS
    SYSVOL C:\WINDOWS\SYSVOL
    NTFRS Database Files = C:\WINDOWS\ntfrs

    Windows SharePoint Services
    Temporary SharePoint space = C:\windows\temp\Frontpagetempdir

    Additional Exclusions
    Removable Storage Database (used by SBS Backup) = C:\Windows\System32\ntmsdata
    SBS POP3 connector Failed Mail = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\POP3\Failed Mail
    SBS POP3 connector Incoming Mail = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\POP3\Incoming Mail
    Windows Update Store = C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
    DHCP Database Store = C:\WINDOWS\system32\dhcp
    WINS Database Store = C:\WINDOWS\system32\wins


    Desktop Folder Exclusions
    These folders need to be excluded in the desktops and notebooks clients.

    Windows Update Store = C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore

    Sorry, I don't have SBS, what we have is one Windows2003 Ent Server which works as Active Directory and another Windows 2003 Ent with Exchange 2003 Ent this is called "Exchange Server"

    AMON.
    XMON doesn't look outside of the Exchange Infostore....it's specific for Exchange only.

    As per the NOD32 documentation I have excluded the following files too:

    .EDB
    .TMP
    .EML

    Also look at the screen capture attached.

    Please tell me if this is correct?
