Exclusions
« on: June 10, 2004, 03:17:37 AM »
Is there a way to just exclude directories/files when it is accessed/read (and/or by modification date), but not on write? (Similar to the exclusion set in McAfee VS Enterprise)

Files can be added to the exclude list easily.

So... how do I make it so it only excludes on access, but not on write.  Or is that only on access.

I do not know. I would assume adding it to exclude list excludes it from ALL scanning

This would actually be a cool power-feature.  For each item you exclude, they could have 2 checkboxes for "On Write" or "On Access", and you could select exactly which aspect you wanted to exclude.  Right now, you can just "Exclude" and thats that from what I can see.

Nice feature idea, i'd submit it into the stick at the top dealing with "Suggestions/Requests".
