What is the cpu, memory usage like during the scans?
Which patch # do you have installed on those VS 8.0i machines? We like patch #14 but if you're using #15 or # 16, you might check the information and "fix" in the link below. It might speed things up a little.:
Microsoft Office hosted files remain locked until the server is restarted
Instead of setting it to scan "All Files", have you tried changing the settings so it scans "default" files.. It speeds the scan up substantially and still scans the important "infectable" files.
And yep, we scan out stuff over night or on weekends, although none of our scans take the amount of time that your's does..
No, I've not noticed that 8.5i is substantially faster than 8.0i..
In my experience with scanners, the faster drives don't make much of a difference.. Primarily, the faster RPM decreases "seek" time and that's not really the issue here. The file has already been found, and instead, it becomes how fast the scanner will wade through the files.. A faster processor certainly decreases scan times though.
Hope this helps.
Hmm that article helps me with some odd issues with Office files locking on VS8.0
Thanks as it may also fix my problem that I thought was OS related!
