Helo everyone. Could someone explain how the exclusions difference between folder exclusion and file exclusion? What I'm confused about is the note in this article: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH105240&profileURL=https%3A%2F%2Fsymaccount-profile.symantec.com%2FSSO%2Findex.jsp%3FssoID%3D1378802577244p9p6nJX36Gw61bE093Bp87F0E95Bhxr4XGc2H
Note: It is necessary to exclude the folders containing these files for maximum effectiveness. Folder based exclusions are processed before AutoProtect or scheduled scans access a file where file name or extension based exclusions are processed after the scan happens.
Do I understand correctly that file defined in exclusion will still be scanned by autoprotect realtime or schedulled scan? So no matter I define the file, scan will still touch it on the machines and bring additional load? Thank you.
