This article contains links to articles and pre-filtered lists of content. It covers only the most frequently used articles on file and folder exclusions for ENS 10.x and VSE 8.x in the Knowledge Center on the ServicePortal. The list is not comprehensive and does not contain specific issues that you might experience when you set exclusions.
