How to exclude a folder? Let it not be scanned

My file path:

  • /TVseries
    • /Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)
      • /Season1
        • Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) S01E01.mkv
        • Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) S01E02.mkv
        • Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995) S01E03.mkv
      • /exation
        • Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)_indult.rar
        • Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)_pv.mkv
        • Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)_OVA.mp4
        • Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)_checksum.bin
        • 新世纪エヴァンゲリオン一 特別収録.mp4

I want to exclude the ‘exation’ folder,But I don’t know how to do it,He gets scanned every time.

I don’t want to move the file, and I don’t want ‘exation’ to be scanned.

There are many files in ‘exation’ that will lengthen the scan time. Do not scan them.

Is there any way?

Don’t take this for granted but on Emby you can create a file called .ignore (no file extensions and remember the period) within the folder you want exlcuded and it won’t be scanned.

I haven’t tried this myself yet. I just tested it and it works fine.
