    Jason,

    Your files & directories scanner should be configured like this:

    C:\happyadmin\**\

    I also recommend that you add it to your standard scan profile rather than use a new scan profile.

    Are you trying to capture this data in a collection or a report? Could you provide a screenshot of your filters for your report/collection?

    So the software is Druva. Right now the scan profile appears to work fine because when I look at a computer I can see those directories populated in the files and directories tab. So on my machine for example I see JSOJA            C:\ProgramData\Druva\inSync4\users\.    So the way I have the collection is I have a parent collection of users that have Druva installed, which appears to be working fine. I then have a child collection that has a filter for All > Files and Directories - Path - Contains - C:\ProgramData\Druva\inSync4\users\**\ . Drill down from Parent collection is checked. It is not picking up on anything. Is it the Path  - contains bit that is messing me up?

    Ok, I think I have it figured out. Here are my filters for my test collection:

    ...so I think for your application, I think you would set your filters like:

    All

         Files & Directories > Path > Starts With > %ProgramData%\Druva\inSync4\users\

         Files & Directories > Type > Is > Directory

    I changed C:\ProgramData to use the environmental variable instead, it's just more mobile that way since systems with programdata stored in a different location will still work. Make sure you don't miss the trailing backslash on the path or you will pick up the "user" folder itself.
