[KB3078] describes files/paths that are automatically excluded for Windows Server and Microsoft technologies such as SQL, IIS, Exchange, etc.
Reading through the KB article, I found that the SQL exclusions specifically designate files and paths on the C drive.
As a matter of practice, we install all our sql instances on volumes other than C
I reached out to support who confirmed that the exclusions only apply to files/paths on the c:\ drive.
I would like for the C drive designation to be replaced with a wildcard designation for the automatic exclusions. At this time, I'm singularly focused on the exclusions for SQL Server, but I'm sure that admins of other technologies (Exchange for sure) could benefit from a similar volume wildcard replacement.
Thanks for considering my request!
