  1. Hi,
    Using EMS and FortiClient and configured Excluded Folders like this: T:\
    This is shared network drive and I see that it’s being scanned by random clients.
    Can root folder be excluded like this or I have to specify each folder under T:\

  2. Yes. I have just found under Advanced setting of profile setting “Scan network files” which I toggled to Off setting.
    It seems that excluded folder setting is being used only for local drives and does not apply to network mapped drives. Normally there is no explanation of this behavour anywhere so this is my conclusion.
