Filename masks

File mask is the filename template against which the file and folder names are matched. The mask may include path to the file, however this is optional. Examples are:

c:\temp\*.tmp
*.doc	

The next volume path types are acceptable:

  • in the form of unique volume name: Volume{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}\
  • hidden volume mounting points in following format: \\.\mounting_point_name\
  • DOS format of volume name: C:\
  • network resources in following format: \\server_name\share_name\ (see Monitoring of network resources topic for details)

    Per-process rules and masks

    For callback and access rules the mask can be specified in the form of

    processname_to_match.exe|file_mask_as_described_above
    ~processname_to_exclude.exe|file_mask_as_described_above
    
    The first variant specifies that the rule is applicable only to the process with specified process name. The second variant specifies that the rule is applicable to all processes except the process with specified process name. EXE name and mask are separated with PIPE (|) character.
