Scan did not complete
« on: July 05, 2021, 02:04:01 AM »
I run scheduled daily quick scan & weekly full system scan.  All appear to run correctly, but in scan history, every scan has an 'i' which says "Scan did not complete".  What does this mean?

There have been many topics relating to this, personally it is a poor choice of icon (with no explanation what it is) and a poor choice of terminology, didn't complete, when I feel it should probably say 'scan completed, however some files couldn't be scanned.'

Technically it hasn't completed if some files weren't able to be scanned.
