On-Access settings - Windows Exclusions

Can someon tell me if this is a viable exclusion...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.SOPHOS\MSSQL\DATA\*.bak

 

Does this mean the exclusion is for a file called [*.bak] rather the star being used as a wild card?

Hi,

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.SOPHOS\MSSQL\DATA\*.bak

will exclude all files called "anything.bak" in the above directory.

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.SOPHOS\MSSQL\DATA\

would exclude all files and sub-directories in the above directory.

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.SOPHOS\MSSQL\DATA\something.bak

would exclude a flle called "something.bak" in that directory.

 

to prove the exclusions work you can always test with eicar.com (http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html)

 

Regards,

Jak

Brilliant.

Thanks for the reply.  That confirmed what I had hoped.
