    How to disable On Access Scan on a backup process?


      We have noctice that if we disable McAfee On-access scaning on our Servers the backups finish about 5 x quicker (about 2.5 hours instead of 12 hours).

      We are using a program called backup assist to do backups to a NAS drive and to Tape drive.

      The Mcsheild.exe runs at aroung 30%-50% cpu druing backups if on access scanning is turned on but 0% if OAS is turned off.


      is there any way to trust the Backupassist.exe so that Mcafee does scan every file it backs up and slows down the backup.


      I don't reall want to have to disable real time Virus protection permanatly just to do backs in a timely manor.
