Windows FS dataset help - exlusion wildcards

Jump to solution

Hi guys,

Relativly new to Avamar and basically been tasked with ensuring that our entire new installation is configured correctly.

I have a question around data-sets for Windows FS, currently I have a very long exlusion list becuase for each drive letter I have had to add the following exclusions:

C:\RECYCLER

C:\RECYCLE.BIN

C:\DISKEEPER

90% of our servers only have C/D/E drives, but the odd one can have letters across the board and all the way up to Z. While I fully understand the use of the '*' wildcard at the directory and file level would Avamar support the * at the drive level as per the below?

*\RECYCLER

*\RECYCLE.BIN

*\DISKEEPER

Thanks for the input.

Paul
