Rule 3: Maximum Number of Files to Scan
OfficeScan scans files up to the specified limit. OfficeScan scans files and folders in numeric and then alphabetic order.
Continuing from the example in Rule 2, OfficeScan has flagged the highlighted files for scanning:
In addition, my_archive.zip contains a folder named 7Folder, which was not checked against Rule 2. This folder contains FFF.doc and GGG.ppt. This brings the total number of files to be scanned to 5, as highlighted below:
If you set the limit to 4 files, the following files are scanned:
For files that contain embedded files, OfficeScan extracts the content of the embedded files.
If the extracted content is text, the host file (such as 123.doc) and embedded files (such as abc.txt and xyz.xls) are counted as one.
If the extracted content is not text, the host file (such as 123.doc) and embedded files (such as abc.exe) are counted separately.
