EPO Exception question

I am trying to do the following but need to verify how to create this exception with epo 4.0

I have a folder that could be on multiple drives with multiple names.  The names will share the first 8 characters followed by a 2-5 character site code.

for example

c:\program files\datatest12

d:\program files\datatest232

e:\program files\datatest56


Is there anyway I can exclude this with wildcards?

In this example the following directories would be excluded:
c:\documents and settings\Administrator\Local Settings\temp

I believe what you want is:


This should resolve to any folder starting with 'datatest' anywhere in the folder structure on any drive.  The trailing backslash is very important.
