Scan Exclusion List (Files)

OfficeScan will not scan a file if its file name matches any of the names included in this exclusion list. If you want to exclude a file found under a specific location on the computer, include the file path, such as C:\Temp\sample.jpg.

You can specify a maximum of 250 files.

When you configure the file list, choose from the following options:

  • Retains client computer's exclusion list: This is the default selection. If you make changes to the exclusion list and this option is enabled, you will not be able to save the changes. This option is provided to prevent overwriting a client’s existing exclusion list accidentally. If you want to deploy the changes you made, select any of the other options.

  • Overwrites the client computer's exclusion list: This option removes the entire exclusion list on the client and replaces it with the list you just configured. If you choose this option, OfficeScan displays a warning. To proceed, you must click OK in the message window.

  • Adds path to the client computer's exclusion list: This option adds the items in the list you just configured to the client’s existing exclusion list. If an item already exists in the client’s exclusion list, the client ignores the item.

  • Removes path from the client computer's exclusion list: The client removes an item in its exclusion list if it matches an item in the list you just configured.
