If you’ve configured path based exclusions in FCS 1.0, you may notice that mount points in the path tree are still scanned. This happens because the mount point resides on a different volume than the parent folder. When a file is accessed on the mount point, FCS receives a device path that is not a child of the excluded folder and FCS doesn’t connect the mount point association when it applies the exclusion.
This is a known issue, and we apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause.

Jeramy wrote up the steps you need to take in order to deploy rollup KB981889 before deploying the FEP client software – take a look:

If you want to run the FEP Client install from the DP you need to do the following:
