VSE 8.7i Multiple Drive Exclusions

Jump to solution

I want to exclude the same folder and subfolders with different drive letters as in the example below.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\

D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\

E:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\

F:\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\

Would   **\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\    work along with the "Also Exclude Subfolders" box checked?

or do I need    **\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\**

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks BakerRL

( https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB50998&pmv=print ) is a good document for you to review, the rules for exclusions.

Based on this document, your first solution is the correct one.

**\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\

would work, and so would

**\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data\

or

**\MSSQL\Data\

Note, that the trailing \ is required for this to reference a directory. Using ** at the end, would, well, I am not sure how that would be interpreted, but I believe it would interpret this as a File exclusion.

Good luck,
