Reported to me via email, the affected file was reported to be

%localappdata%\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA GeForce Experience\CefCache\IndexedDB*.LOG

we should probably move this to a separate entry as i believe the geforce experience does not do anything if you're not logged into it

This is certainly an unintended side effect of FileKey12:

FileKey12=%LocalAppData%\NVIDIA Corporation|*.log;*.bak;*.old|RECURSE

FileKey12 uses RECURSE to clean up the various subfolders as well. Unfortunately, the subfolder "CefCache" is Chromium-based and therefore *.log files are database files there.

The proposed exception should work:

ExcludeKey1=PATH|%LocalAppData%\NVIDIA Corporation\*\CefCache\IndexedDB\|*.log
