Hello Experts,

I need to create virus scan exclusions for McAfee VS 8.8 and need some clarification on the below.

What's the difference between 1 & 2?
1. \Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$instancename\DATA\
2. C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$instancename\DATA\

How do I exclude an entire drive from scanning?

This may help in understanding as below examples.
e.g. **\Temp\** - Exclude the Temp folder in any location, on any drive
e.g. <drive:>\**\*.tmp - Exclude all files with the tmp extension (*.tmp) in any folder on a specific drive:
https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB54812

You can even be more specific to use exclusion based on physical instead of above logical path.
E.g: \Device\HardDiskVolume1\Windows\File1.txt rather than C:\Windows\File1.txt
https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB61000

Hence in your case (1) it is actually referring to physical path which is not accurate. Your case (2) is referring to a folder under that logical path for exclusion in C drive. And for case (3), it is correct as exclusion for the whole logical Q: drive
