DiskBoss provides the ability to exclude one or more directories from disk space analysis and file management operations.
In order to configure exclude directories, open the analysis or file management command configuration dialog, press
the 'Options' button, select the 'Exclude' tab and add one or more directories to exclude.
In the simplest case, just add a full directory path to exclude from the analysis or file management operation.
In addition, advanced users are provided with a number of exclude directories macro commands allowing one to exclude
multiple directories using a single macro command.
DiskBoss provides the following exclude directories macro commands:
- $BEGINS <Text String> - this macro command excludes all directories beginning with the specified text string.
- $CONTAINS <Text String> - this macro command excludes all directories containing the specified text string.
- $ENDS <Text String> - this macro command excludes directories ending with the specified text string.
- $REGEX <Regular Expression> - this macro command excludes all directories matching the specified regular expression.
For example, the exclude macro command '$CONTAINS Temporary Files' will exclude all directories with 'Temporary Files'
at any place in the full directory path and the exclude macro command '$REGEX \.(TMP|TEMP)$' will exclude all directories
ending with '.TMP' or '.TEMP'.
