Define File Groups for Screening
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
A file group is used to define a namespace for a file screen, file screen exception, or Files by File Group storage report. It consists of a set of file name patterns, which are grouped by the following:
Files to include: files that belong in the group
Files to exclude: files that do not belong in the group
For convenience, you can create and edit file groups while you edit the properties of file screens, file screen exceptions, file screen templates, and Files by File Group reports. Any file group changes that you make from these property sheets are not limited to the current item that you are working on.
To create a file group
In File Screening Management, click the File Groups node.
On the Actions pane, click Create File Group. This opens the Create File Group Properties dialog box.
(Alternatively, while you edit the properties of a file screen, file screen exception, file screen template, or Files by File Group report, under Maintain file groups, click Create.)
In the Create File Group Properties dialog box, type a name for the file group.
Add files to include and files to exclude:
For each set of files that you want to include in the file group, in the Files to include box, enter a file name pattern, and then click Add.
For each set of files that you want to exclude from the file group, in the Files to exclude box, enter a file name pattern, and then click Add.
Note that standard wildcard rules apply—for example, *.exe selects all executable files.
