malware scan in EIS 10 does 1/3 as many files as smart scan in EIS 9

Recommended Posts

My EIS was automatically upgraded from EIS9 to EIS 10. Very smooth with no problems. I ran a malware scan which was very rapid compared to previous smart scans. But the Malware scan covered 70K files whereas the smart scan did over 210K files. Is this expected?

Yes, it is. The new Malware Scan is a lot more intelligent when it comes to which files are selected to be scanned. Not only reduces it the amount of harmless files that are scanned, but it actually includes dozens of locations that were missed by the old Smart Scan. So the Malware Scan is a lot more reliable while scanning less compared to the old Smart Scan :).

Thank you for the prompt and informative answer.
