  1. Click Add, type the directory that you want to exclude from scanning into the Select path field and then click OK.


To exclude the contents of an entire drive (all "child" folders), the * symbol can be used as a wildcard. For example, to exclude scanning of the entire C:\ drive, you would enter C:\* in the Exclusion: field. The *.* symbol can be used to exclude only the contents of the folder itself. For additional information on the use of wildcards to exclude file/folder scanning, press F1 from the Add exclusion window. When excluding a specific file, ensure that you use the full path beginning with the drive letter.

  1. Click OK to close the Add exclusion field and then click OK again to save your changes.
