When using wildcards to specify or exclude scan items, these
- Valid wildcards are question mark (?) for excluding single
characters and asterisk (*) for excluding multiple characters.
- Wildcards can appear in front of a back slash (\) in a path.
For example: C:\ABC\*\XYZ matches C:\ABC\DEF\XYZ.
- An exclusion containing question mark (?) characters applies if
the number of characters matches the length of the file or folder
name. For example: The exclusion W?? excludes WWW, but does not
exclude WW or WWWW.
- The syntax is extended to include a double asterisk (**), which
means zero or more of any characters including back slash.
This allows multiple-depth exclusions. For example: C:\ABC\**\XYZ
matches C:\ABC\DEF\XYZ and C:\ABC\DEF\DEF\XYZ, etc.
