How do I exclude a file or folder from scanning?

Sometimes you may want to exclude a file or folder from scanning. Excluded items are not scanned unless you remove them from the excluded items list.

To exclude a file or folder from scanning:

  1. Open the main user interface.
  2. Select Tools and then select App and file control.

    Note: You need administrative rights to access these settings.

  3. Select the Excluded tab. This view shows you a list of currently excluded locations and applications.
  4. Click Add new.
  5. Select the file or folder you want to exclude, and click OK. The selected files, drives or folders are excluded from future scans.
  6. Click Close to close the window.

Note: Real-time and manual scanning use the same exclusions. If you want an excluded file or folder to be included in a real-time or manual scan, in the Excluded tab, click Remove to clear the file or folder.
