I noticed in my software inventory policies that *AppData* folders are excluded by default. If I just added an inclusion of %LocalAppData%, anyone know the effect of doing this? Not sure what *AppData* folders will get scanned, if any, with this overlap. For now, I'd prefer just scanning %LocalAppData% instead of removing the *AppData* exclusion which would scan all folders that included "AppData" in their name.
It's hidden for a reason and excluded from scans for a reason too. The AppData folder just holds settings and configs for programs installed on the device.
Should be no issues including it in a scan, but it would probably add time to the scan so bear that in mind.
