File Director powered by AppSense
Ivanti File Director is the new name for AppSense DataNow
File Director keeps all files in sync, regardless of age, type, or size. You may want to tailor what gets synced, saving network bandwidth and storage.
You can define exclusions for macOS File Director clients to exclude files and file types from being uploaded.
The exclusions use the same "language" as the exclusions for the File Director Windows client:
<Rule name> = <expression>
rule<Number> = rule<Number> AND rule [Number]
For example, the following excludes ISO files:
defaults write com.ivanti.filedirector exclusionRule -dict-add "extensionISO" "ext= .iso"
For more information on Windows exclusions, see File Sync in the File Director help.
Certain files and folders are excluded by default to save resources, for example:
|.DS-Store||Desktop Services Store files|
|.download||Safari temp download files|
|.crdownload||Chrome temp download files|
|.Spotlight-V100||Index data files for Spotlight searches|
|.fseventstd||File System Events notifications|
|.DocumentRevisions-V100||Excel temp files|
|.VolumeIcons.icns||Volume icon folder|
|.TemporaryItems||Folder for temp items|
|.Trashes||Folder that stores deleted data|
|~*||Paths that start with a tilde, for example Office temp files|
