Applies to Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Storage

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Storage allows to exclude objects from scan:

  • exclude selected files, scripts or folders;
  • exclude files, scripts or folders using a mask;
  • exclude objects by threat type.

The easiest way to configure exclusions is via Kaspersky Anti-virus Trusted zone. It is recommended to configure task-specific exclusions for on-demand-scan tasks only.

Scripts can be excluded from scan only via Trusted zone.

Below are different scenarios to configure task-specific exclusions:

Exclude selected files, scripts or folders

  1. Select an Anti-virus task in the console.

  2. Go to the tab Configuring scan scope

  3. Uncheck boxes of files/folders which you want to exclude from scan:



    By unchecking child nodes, the parent one becomes grey.

  4. Save the changes.


Exclude files, scripts or folders using a mask

  1. Select an Anti-virus task in the console.

  2. Go to the tab Configuring scan scope

  3. Select a file/folder which you want to exclude from scan and click Settings

  4. Go to the tab Performance, check the box Exclude objects, click Edit and enter a mask.



    For example:

    *.exe 
    – all files with extension .exe
    *.ex? – all files with extension ex?, where ? stands for any single symbol
    test – all files named test

    By entering masks to a child node, the box of the parent one becomes grey.

    The field Exclude object can be used for masks only. No object paths here.

  5. Save the changes.


Exclude objects by threat type

  1. Select an Anti-virus task in the console.

  2. Go to the tab Configuring scan scope

  3. Select a file/folder for which you want to make an exclusion (i.e. Anti-virus will ignore certain threats detected inside it) and click Settings.

  4. Go to the tab Performance, check the box Exclude threats, click Edit and enter a threat type. It is necessary to enter an original threat name (as defined by Kaspersky Anti-virus). Masks can be used as well.



    By entering masks to a child node, the box of the parent one becomes grey.

  5. Save the changes.
