There may be situations where a full file scan is not desired. For example if an Inventory Policy is used to scan only the contents of a specific folder, a certain configuration has to be used in order to achieve this.

The following walk-through describes how to set this up.

  1. Select the Policy you wish to configure.
  2. Click the Advanced button.
  3. Click the tab labeled: File Property Scan Settings.
  4. Within that tab, click the tab labeled Drives.
  5. Remove all Drives from the include list. Leave the exclude list blank.
  6. Now click the Folders tab.
  7. Under the include section, add what directories/folders you wish to scan.
  8. Save the changes to commit the configuration.
