Exclude a folder in macOS
On a computer using TimeMachine to a local disk it is recommended to exclude the backup from the anti-virus scan, to avoid a catch 22 problem with emails containing viruses that are backed up before they are deleted from the email client.
- Start Symantec Endpoint Protection by clicking on "Open Symantec Endpoint Protection" in the Symantec menu in the up right corner.
- Click on "Settings".
- Click on "Configure...".
- Click on "Add..." and select a folder to exclude.
- Make sure that the folder (or folders) that you selected are shown in the section "Don't Scan:" and click "OK".
