We are using Filr, a dropbox-like sync and file share application from Novell to store our users personal files and group folders. Most of the files are stored on the server, and only files recently accessed is stored locally in a cache. This is very useful for users with large home folders as only folders and files most used is cached to the local machine, saving a lot of disk space.

However, our problem is with the kace agent and espescially inventory.exe which scans through all disks looking for .exe files. This triggers the Filr client to download the folder to the local harddrive, eating up all disk space.

Is there a way to prevent inventory.exe from scanning certain disk locations, and if so how do we do it?

We have prohibited inventory.exe from running on the server via server management, but this doesn't always work, and it generates a lot of errors client side confusing the user...

I am also having this issue with a network and there are no options in the command line for inventory.exe that would allow me to skip folders.

I hope to hear options at this point

Same problem here with Dropbox Smart Sync.
The point is that no one here has given a valid answer to solve the problem! :-(
