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 after it has been stored, the renamed file will continue to be excluded from truncation unless the renamed file does not match exclusion criteria and is modified so that it gets stored again, or you execute the command fschfiat –t c to remove the exclusion from the file.
