Windows 10 Pro Build 19044
My machine is a Digital Audio Workstation Laptop and I require to be able to prevent Windows Defender Antivirus from performing any actions on a large number of specific folders
In the Local Group Policy Editor, I know if I go to:
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components >Microsoft Defender Antivirus > Exclusions
then Path Exclusions > Enabled > Options > Show Button
It brings up a "show Contents" box with a user editable area "Path Exclusions" with "Value name" & "Value"
This is where I become not so clear on what I must do...
If, for example I wanted to exclude a folder called "Folder 1" in Program Files I need to add the full path:
C:\Program Files\Folder 1 in Value Name" and then add 0 in Value to ENABLE the exclusion.
Is it correct that Windows Defender will then exclude Folder 1 and all files and sub folders from any real time protection and scans?
As I have around 30 folders that I wish to exclude (all music related), do I really have to enter each path one at a time or is there
a way to batch import them, maybe from a text file?
