What is the difference between "Service Exclusions" and "File Extensions Excluded from Scanning"

Wie unterscheiden sich „Erkennungsroutine > Ausschlussfilter > Leistungsausschlüsse“ von 
Denn Ausschlüssen unter „Erkennungsroutine > Echtzeit-Datenschutz > THREATSENSE-PARAMETER > Vom Scannen ausgeschlossene Dateiendungen“

Im ersteren kann ich Pfade und Dateiendungen „*.doc“ hinterlegen. 
Im zweiten nur Dateiendungen. 

            Es ist leider nicht zu erkennen, ob die Ausschlüsse von Oben nach untern durchvererbt werden. 
            Muss ich um die Echtzeiterkennung für bestimmte Dateiendungen auszuhebeln diese noch mal eintragen, oder genügt es diese unter       Leistungssauschlüsse zu hinterlegen? 

Machine translation:

How does "Detection routine > Exclusion filter > Performance exclusions" differ from
Because exclusions under "Detection engine > Real-time data protection > THREATSENSE PARAMETERS > File extensions excluded from scanning"

In the first, I can store paths and file extensions "*.doc".
In the second only file extensions.

Unfortunately, it cannot be seen whether the exclusions are inherited from top to bottom.
Do I have to re-enter the real-time detection for certain file extensions, or is it sufficient to store them under performance exclusions?

First of all we kindly ask you to post in English since this is an English forum.

Performance exclusions serve for excluding specific folder and subfolders, or to exclude specific files matching the mask in a specific folder. In the extensions setup you exclude extensions globally regardless of the path.

Please elaborate more on what you would like to achieve. Files with what extension would you like to exclude? Would you like to exclude them globally or only in specific folders?

Hallo Marcos,

thanks for the quick reply. I'd like to exclude them globally.


For Example:

Performance exclusions



Does this Rule also apply to
  > "real time / Processes exclusions "
  > "Real-time file system protection"

Or do I have to deposit them there as well?

In this case I'd recommend excluding the Veeam process responsible for backup and removing the already created exclusions. Note that a full path to the executable must be entered in the performance exclusions setup.

Performance and detection exclusions are applied by all scanners, including real-time protection and on-demand scanner.
Use performance exclusions to resolve performance issues, detection exclusions to exclude a specific detection (e.g. a potentially unsafe application that you use on purpose) or process exclusions to resolve performance or detection issues caused by a particular safe process (e.g. backup).  Extension exclusions are not usually used since it could be dangerous to widely exclude files that can contain malware. We recommend confining exclusions to specific files.
