NOD32 on my Server 2003 is scanning the Volume shadow copyt as it is backed up. For eaxample, I would like to EXCLUDE "\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy*" However, as stated in an earlier thread (https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=255934), this is not possible: "Hello, The path you tried to add: \Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy* is not a valid path. It needs to be an actual file path." Can ESET provide an explination please as to why NOD scans Volume Shadow Copy without the ability to exclude them?! Especially on a Server operating system?? I am also very curious why this issue is not more common!! For example, all my default exclusions ( Exchange, SYSVOL, my Spam Quarantine fodler...) are completley ignored during a Volume Shadow Copy backup. There must be a solution?
