FS#324 - Certain Files are being Ignored

Certain files seem to be ignored by either the engine scanner or somewhere else upstream.

I can’t seem to reproduce this with initial testing.

This also makes me think the Review Settings section should have a Debug/Verbose mode that contains additional information for cases such as these.

2 BIN files, 2 IND files, 2 BDM files, 1 XML file and 2 files with no
extension do not get copied even though .* is set and and minimum filesize is 0

Thanks to Olivier C. for reporting

Turns out this may be due to the files being located within System Volume Information?

FileSieve, at a low level, will ignore files located within that directory, just as it will ignore the hiberfil.sys file, RECYCLER folder, etc. This ensures there aren't any major incidents related to system files.
