Hi

We are running McAfee ePO 4.0 along with VirusScan 8.5

I need to exclude a folder from the on-access scan...however, I notice that I can do this either via amending one of the following policies..

On-Access Default Processes Policies
On-Access General Policies
On-Access High-Risk Processes Policies
On-Access Low-Risk Processes Policies

I'm confused which one(s) I need to edit to exclude that particular folder...can anyone help?

Is it also recommended to exclude such folders from the on-demand scan policy?

Cheers!

McAfee will use On-Access Default Processes Policies on default, so set what you want excluded there.

But if you want to understand McAfee low/high risk, then you can check out:

https://knowledge.mcafee.com/article/871/9162748_f.SAL_Public.html

From what I see, you can set files to be low/high risk for scanning, and when you scan you change the policy, but this is probably not needed for you, mCafee will just use the default processes policies, so stick to that one.
