    Hi,

    On the advanced setup tree in v 3.0 there is a section called "exclusions." If a folder or file is added under this section, exactly what kinds of scanning will the folder or file be excluded from?

    Thanks in advance.

    A small followup on this question about exclusions.

    When i want to exclude particular files, do i HAVE to include the drive it would be on?

    Like:
    C:\*.vmem
    C:\*.vmdk

    Our developpers have their vmware files stored in different locations, ranging from C to F do i have to add the above exclusions for every drive?

    D:\*.vmem
    E:\*.vmem
    etc

    Or is there an easier way to do this? Just pushing a configuration with "*.vmem" did not seem to work.

    Thanks.

    if you know the file extensions for the possible problem files you could try to exclude the by file extension from within the threath sense engine parameters setup,

    files in the "exclusions" list are skipped when performing an on-demand scan. When adding a file for exclusion, it must include the full path to it, including the partition letter. When you use the 'add' button and browse to the file, the full path is included automatically so no need to worry about that.
