Full system scan on Debian
« on: December 04, 2023, 06:14:57 PM »
Hey there, I would like to see an example that easily make a full system scan without interfering some directories like /dev/ e.g. Can you give me an example scan command excluding these temporary and system direcories? ;)

Hi, the -e parameter is what you're looking for.

-e _PATH_
Exclude _PATH_ from the scan. Use this option multiple times when more than one exclude path is

Code: [Select]
scan -e /dev /path/to/scan
It's all in the man page of the scan command.
