WE have a Centralized Scanning Exception for a folder listed similar to the following:
This is for exclusing the folder. WIll this work with the '\*' at the end as well?
Even if you don't put \* it will exclude everything inside HBGDDNA
SEP does not allow Wildcard, check the below articles
Title: 'Which variables and wildcards does Endpoint Protection allow in Centralized Exception Policies?'

Title: 'Wildcards are not usable within Centralized 'Tamper Protection' Exceptions'
Web URL: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH104963&locale=en_US
What then will happen since it has the '\*' in it, and, whatever that action will be, is it documented anywhere?
You can check if it is being scanned or not by this :
It is documented that wildcards are not allowed - I am not sure if here already is an idea to introduce such a feature - if not, you can submit one :-) What will happen I am not sure - I have no access to SEPM now but or the exception will not be created or will not work properly.
