Scanning of External Media\Devices

Good Afternoon, Is there any way to setup automatic mandatory scanning of external devices (USB) when it connects to the laptop and make the data on the external device not available until the scan is complete? Thank you!

Re: Scanning of External Media\Devices

Hi @User89362322 ,

Thankyou for reaching us on community!

Unfortunately, we do not have this functionality. But, we will scan files on USB by OnAccess Scan When there are any file activities from/to the USB. This scan will be specific to the files that are involved in the file activity.


More information :


I hope this helps.
