Hi Keith or Colin,
Exclude a file from scan - > I understand that from the settings as "url and lnk" and these files excluding from the policy execution. Based on the previous explanation "it is because when we apply Shortcut and Archive/Stub policy to items, this is the new extension the items will have in the source repository. Having these extensions excluded will ensure the shortcut/stub policy items have no further policy applied." it makes sense.
1) Once we are sure about the particular repositories lnk can delete, then remove from the settings and execute the policy? I mean anytime can add or remove based on our convenence. Hope it is correct.
2) Few lnks stays in the repository after the policy execution, which is correct due to the exclusion. But, when I clicked the lnk file by directly navigate to the share path and clicked, it is removed. But the document count still shows in CP. I just did rescan [ incremental and full scan ] it never got updaated to zero. Usually, I will take backup of connector_TASK<repository>_datastore.db and force to full scan and it will correct the count. But this time, since it is empty folder fullscan make the database table MetaData also became empty for the particular repository.
I am trying to restore the yesterday Database because we need the tracking on each repository? Is there any other table we are mainintaining this Meta Data history?
