Description

For Windows file servers you can specify a list of programs that are prohibited from recalling archived items. This mechanism can be useful if you use an antivirus or backup program that does not honor the file system offline attribute.

To specify a list of prohibited programs, edit ExcludedExes on the file server to specify the names of the program executable files, separated by semicolons (;).

For example, to exclude Windows Explorer, MyBackupProg.exe, and Antivirus.exe, specify:

Explorer.exe;MyBackupProg.exe;Antivirus.exe

If you change the list of prohibited programs you must restart the Placeholder Service on the file server in order to make the change take effect.
