FCS Path based exclusions do not apply to mount points

January 19th, 2011 Comments off


If you’ve configured path based exclusions in FCS 1.0, you may notice that mount points in the path tree are still scanned. This happens because the mount point resides on a different volume than the parent folder. When a file is accessed on the mount point, FCS receives a device path that is not a child of the excluded folder and FCS doesn’t connect the mount point association when it applies the exclusion.

This is a known issue, and we apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause.
