Excluding items from scans

McAfee MOVE AntiVirus scanners enable you to fine-tune the list of scanned items by specifying items to exclude.

For example, you might need to exclude some file types to prevent a scanner from locking a file used by a key application, database, or server. A locked file can cause the database or server to fail or generate errors.
