What to Scan
« on: May 05, 2004, 06:45:52 AM »
Hi--

I have two 120 GB HDD's on my system--one Ghosted to the other for backup. I have +/- 50 GB of music files.

If I scan all HDD's--it's a good 6-8 hours. Obviously there's no point in scanning the music files over and over.

What files really need to be scanned on a regular basis? I have Resident Protection set to Standard.

Thanks...

BTW this is my system:

Media Center Registered 10.0.116 -- C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center\

Microsoft Windows XP 5.1 Service Pack 1 (Build 2600)

i guess you can skip the ghosted backup and your music files..they should be fine...and set your resident protection to high

Perhaps the only time the "Ghosted" harddrive would need scanning would be if and when a virus is found on the primary harddrive.    :)

Charley--

Good point! :-\

My logic--possibly flawed--would be to do the scan before the backup.

So--the backup would be clean--or am I missing something?

I think SHGOH means that it would be obvious that the "Ghost" drive would be clean since you are doing backups after scanning the primary harddrive.    :D  

Still, if it were me and I found a problem on the primary drive, I would probably scan the "Ghost" drive also ... just for my own reassurance.    :)

Hi Again--

By using the Folder scan instead of "All Local Disks" I've got the scan time down to a reasonable time--5GB scan eliminating the music files.

But it seems I have to reconfigure the folder scan each time I run it--checking all those little boxes--except "My Music." Is there a way to save the folder setting?

Also I notice the "Date of Last Scan" doesn't seem to update when I use the Folder Scan. Is there a way to change this so it updates?

add it to the exclusion list...open avast main program...go to menu...settings...exclusions

if i'm not wrong...the date don't change until you do a full scan...

just try adding your music to exclusion list and do a full scan..and you never have to configure it again
