Define file groups for screening

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

A file group is used to define a namespace for a file screen, file screen exception, or storage report. It consists of a set of file name patterns, which are grouped into files to include and files to exclude:

  • Files to include: files that belong in the group.

  • Files to exclude: files that do not belong in the group.

noteNote
For convenience, you can maintain file groups while you edit the properties of file screens, file screen exceptions, and file screen templates. 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

  1. In File Screen Management, right-click File Groups, and then click Create file group.

    -Or-

    While you edit the properties of a file screen, file screen exception, or file screen template, under Manage file groups, click Create. This opens the Create File Group Properties dialog box.

  2. Type a name for the file group.

  3. 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 click Add.

      Standard wildcard rules apply. For example, *.exe selects all executable files.

    • For each set of files that you want to exclude from the file group, in Files to exclude, add exclusions in the same way.

  4. Click OK.
