How to exclude file type

J-C W/ Alumni Posts: 46 Security Scout



Using PMC 9 + Antivirus for servers 9.00 (+ 3 hotfixes), but have problems with F-secure scanning before/during FTP transfer so the files arrive as 0-byte files at the destination host.


I would like to try to exclude the file type *.~*  (example: *.~temp) from a folder, including 4-5 subfolders.  Please advice on can I exclude the extension, by using "?" somehow?


Tried by adding this path to excluded objects:  *\\HARDDISKVOLUME*\\*\\Folder 


Should this not exclude the whole folder + subfolders from scanning altogether?


F-secure still seems to scan files in the folder/subfolders disturbing the transfer, anyone has other suggestions?


Thanks and regards,

    Not worth investigating that problem as is! Better upgrade to FSPM 10.01 and then FSAV ESS 9.20 (no hotfixes currently). FSAV 9.00 is extremely ancient and the level of modern security is not there without DeepGuard tech.


    Also, you FTP problem will likely go away with the newer, higher performance FSAV product.
