    Syntax to add VSE exclusions in EPO 4.6?


      %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory     (Can you use system variables instead of C:\windows?)

      %systemroot%\sysvol\staging\             (Do you need to add the \ at the end of a path?)

      %systemroot%\sysvol\staging areas  (Do you need to put quotes around paths with spaces?)


      What does "Exclude subfolders" mean?  Does it mean exclude the subfolders from this manually-created list of exlcusion or does it mean exclude from scanning?

          Yes you can use Environment variables check out KB50998

          Yes you have to added the trailing slash for it to be considered as directory otherwise it is considered a file. (Per page 49 of the Virus Scan 8.8 Product Guide)


          If I remember correctly the "Exclude subfolders" means that all folders located in the directory will use the same scan settings as the parent directory specified.


          So If I exclude Root_Folder from being scanned on read and I check "Exclude subfolders" then Root_Folder\SubFolder1 will be excluded from scanning on read as well. 




          I am not sure about putting in a folder with double quotes (") around a path that contains a space.
