Questioning whether scanning Time Machine is necessary.

Jump to solution

We are an Apple Macintosh home, and McAfee is installed on each computer. Each iMac or MBP has completed a full drive scan with clean results.  Each computer has a NEW Time Machine installed.  Computers are placed on overnight Full Scans every Friday.  Inasmuch as real time scanning is enabled on each device, is it necessary to scan each Time Machine?

Hi @RevKate 

Actually it is not necessary to scan each time machine when Real time scan and schedule scan is also enabled with in the UI. As real time scan is on always it ensures that your Mac is completely protected.
