Tools > Storage Manager > Storage Exclusions

The Storage Exclusions option on the Tools menu enables you to specify types of files you want excluded from storage and StorNext processing.

For example, you may want to exclude certain confidential files or files  containing sensitive material.

The process involves specifying file names, as well as criteria so StorNext knows how to identify the files to exclude. You can create as many exclusion patterns as you like, and as your needs change you can delete unwanted exclusion patterns. These exclusions are stored in a file which StorNext checks before executing store operations.

Note: If you exclude a file and then later rename that file, the renamed file will not be excluded from store operations unless:

There is an existing exclusion that covers the renamed file, or you create a new exclusion for the renamed file.
