Drive letter performance exclusion question


Recommended Posts

I have a drive letter that I need to exclude from scanning. I wanted to add for example  e:\*  but when i do this in my Policy for Performance exclusions it doesn't like it and shows in red. If I do  e:\*.  then it will go through. Will this wildcard make sure that no files will get scanned in real time?

It is not possible to exclude whole drives for security reasons. Could you please elaborate more on the use case?

@Marcos Please reference this web page >> https://helpdesk.egnyte.com/hc/en-us/articles/218926917

NOTE: customer did process exclusions for EgnyteClient.exe, EgnyteDrive.exe, EgnyteSyncService.exe, EgnyteUpdate.exe  in the policy but the article is suggesting exclusion of the whole drive letter for Egnyte drive letter. I am not familiar with this program as it is something the customer implemented a while back. This link has info on what it does >> https://www.egnyte.com/blog/2021/02/12780evaluating-mysql-recursive-cte-at-scale/?_ga=2.213699793.418197318.1618429060-2050841226.1618429060

Based on what this program does, do the process exclusion should suffice?

I'd recommend trying process exclusions. Generally exclusions are not a panacea to prevent issues 100% since clashes may occur before exclusions are evaluated so without a test it's impossible to predict what could happen.
