If you are running an AntiVirus software or a file-scanning software, we do recommend excluding a couple of directories used by Altaro in order to ensure that it's operation remains undisrupted.


We do recommend excluding the following:

  • all onsite backup drive directories
  • all offsite backup drive directories
  • C:\ProgramData\Altaro on the Altaro Management and on the Hyper-V hosts
  • C:\Program Files\Altaro on the Altaro Management and on the Hyper-V hosts


Also, if you relocated the Altaro temporary files ensure to exclude that directory as well.
