A directory to be excluded from System .wci catalog RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, there!

    I was referred to this forum because of the following:

    A little while ago, when I was troubleshooting some problems with one of my PCs, I had to delete System .wci catalog. As it turned out (after I figured it out what was causing the problem), the deletion of that catalog was not necessary. Now, I have already recreated the catalog by looking at my other PCs.  

    And the following are directories for the same System .wci catalog that I am trying to exclude:

    C:\Documents and Settings\*\Application Data\*
    C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\*

    I know a star * means 'all'.

    Then, first * in the first directory means what - 'All Users'?

    Then, what is the second *? Does it mean I need to simply highlight the whole Application Data directory?

    And what do *'s mean in C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\*  ?

    Are they supposed to mean my First_Name Last_Name (if I am the only one user)? Because Local Settings directory is only under my First_Name Last_Name. And then again, what is the meaning of the next *, and where is it?

    I hope someone clarifies these questions for me.

    Thanks in advance.
