Is it possible to classify specific file source paths?

Jump to solution
We have a classification of file size over 15MB, and a rule that blocks the copy of these files to removable storage. We wish that files over 15MB in certain paths will be allowed to copy, but we can't seem to find a way to classify/exclude by source path (even tough it is a paramater in incidents) Any idea on how to do so?

Hi @Omriil ,

Thank you for writing in here. If the end user knows that they can transfer files from a specific path to external media then this would be a data loss.

Considering the data loss prevention, Source path is not included under rules Condition tab or in Exclusions tab, and Source path is not present under Classifications menu as well for Removable Storage protection rule.

 

This requirement would not be met by DLP. If you still wish to have this feature, you can raise a Product Idea using the link below,

Thank you.
