Which is correct from the above?
1. **\example\** (with the "exclude and subfolders" checked)
2. **\example\ (with the "exclude and subfolders" checked)
Number 2 is correct.
What's the difference?
I'm 90% sure Number 1 doesn't work. If you're pointing at a directory, you have to end with \, otherwise, it will appear to be a file. I also think that ** can only start an entry, but I'm not sure about that.
Which is correct from the above to exclude from every path the file "example.zip"?
Number 1 is correct. Number 2 will, I think, work fine, but Number 1 is more proper.
thinkead thanks for your answer,
I think you're right but in mcafee knowledgebase (McAfee KnowledgeBase - How to use wildcards when creating exclusions in VirusScan Enterprise 8.x or MOVE AV Multi-Platfo…) have some examples with the two asterisks :
Exclude the Temp folder in any location, on any drive
In this example the following directories would be excluded:
c:\documents and settings\Administrator\Local Settings\temp
I want to be sure because I want to install VSE to Domain Controllers...
What I don't know is whether **\Temp\** would exclude subfolders of a directory called Temp (i.e. C:\Windows\Temp\Testfolder). I'd suggest testing it.
