    I am using the Microsoft Windows file versioning (or file history) feature for my file system (Dateiversionierung in German). I just learned that any files which are tagged and later copied by the file history system are then apparently tagged, too. So I get a mixture of real tagged files (e.g. foo.txt) and their counterpart (\FileHistory\…\foo.txt) from the file history system in the tables view. This makes the list very hard to read. <br><br>Is there a way to prevent the versioned files from being automatically tagged?<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Markus<br>

    If auto-tagging rules are tagging files that should not be tagged, you could try excluding the location C:\FileHistory\

    options > auto-tagging rules > locations excluded by auto-tagging rules.

    But I am not sure this will be enough in your case.

    The files are not auto-tagged. I tagged them manually. Anyway, I have excluded the path now. <br><br>Maybe this is related to Microsoft office files only. I read in the forum that office files are changed/labelled.<br>

    If the problem is only in office files, try unchecking

    options > write tags in metadata
