  1. OneDrive desktop client antivirus exclusions


    Hi, is there any way to tell OneDrive to stop scanning a given file, a given folder or a given file type for virus ? I have some basic text files .md ,txt that contains code examples that are flagged as virus. I tried to zip the file, stripping the file extension, etc, nothing does it. I mean, all antivirus have some exclusions mechanisms, why would OneDrive be different ?

    :)

    Unable to Remove Exclusions from Windows Defender

    Thank you for posting back. If you trust a file, file type, folder, or a process that Windows Defender Antivirus has detected as malicious, you can stop Windows Defender Antivirus from alerting you or blocking the program by adding the file to
    the exclusion list. It seems that it was added automatically. We suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings and select Update & security.
    • Click Windows Defender.
    • Look for Exclusions and select Add an exclusion.
    • Navigate to the file, folder, or process, and select Exclude this file.

    If the steps provided did not work, we recommend that you boot your device to
    Safe Mode
    and redo the process.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
