Create a file screen exception
Updated: August 22, 2005

Occasionally, you will need to be able to allow exceptions to file screening. For example, you might want to block video files from a file server, but you need to allow your training group to save the video files for their computer-based training. To allow files that other file screens are blocking, create a file screen exception.
A file screen exception is a special type of file screen that overrides any file screening that would otherwise apply to a folder, and all its subfolders, in a designated exception path. That is, it creates an exception to any rules derived from a parent folder.
|You cannot create a file screen exception on a folder for which you already have a file screen. You must assign the exception to a subfolder or make changes to the existing file screen.|
To determine which file types will be allowed with the file screen exception, file groups are assigned.
To create a file screen exception
InFile Screening Management, right-click File Screens, and then click Create file screen exception. This opens the Create File Screen Exception dialog box.
Under Exception path, type or select the path to which the exception will apply. The exception will apply to the folder and all of its subfolders.
To determine which files to exclude from file screening, in File groups, select each file group that you want to include in the file screen exception.
If you want to view the members and non-members of a file group, highlight the file group, and click Edit.
