When creating Application and Device Control policies in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM), how can I match a rule against files in a certain folder and all sub-folders?
To match all files in a particular folder use the foldername\* syntax in the Application Control rule.
To match all files in a particular folder and all sub-folders use the foldername\*\* syntax in the Application Control rule.
The foldername\*\* rule will match sub-directories of any depth - there is no need to configure additional rules such as foldername\*\*\*, foldername\*\*\*\* etc., and doing so may have a negative impact on performance.
