    Example we have a database program that recommends excluding the following files. Can I exclude them by using the following syntax in the AMON exclusion files section?
    *.add,*.adt,*.ai,*.adi,*.am

    Thanks for any help

    What you are looking for is not in the Exclusions tab. Instead, go to AMON --> Detection --> Extensions.
    • If you do not have the "Scan all files" box checked, then the list is of the extensions that will be scanned. Make sure your extensions do not appear in this list. Note that it is just the three letters (ADD, ADT, AI, ADI, AM).
    • If you do have the "Scan all files" box checked, then the list is of the extensions that will not be scanned. Go ahead and add your extensions to the list, and they will not be scanned. Again, note that you just use the extensions themselves.
    Hope this helps.

    I'd like to know what a wildcard is?

    I wildcard can be anything

    For example, If I excluded all .*xe files, I would have excluded:

    .axe
    .bxe
    .cxe
    .dxe

    Etc.

    wildcarding extensions would be seriously dangerous imo...
