Adds to a DataFinder configuration a folder that is to be excluded from a search area. You can use this method only when you are working with a DataFinder that is running on the same machine. The method does not support DataFinder federations.

Note  You cannot create exclude folders that nest inside each other.
Note  It can take quite some time to add a folder that is to be excluded from the search. During this time the DataFinder is not available.
