Rule 3: Maximum Number of Files to Scan

Worry-Free Business Security Services scans files up to the specified limit. Worry-Free Business Security Services scans files and folders in numeric and then alphabetic order.

Continuing from the example in Rule 2, Worry-Free Business Security Services has flagged the highlighted files for scanning:

my_archive.zip      
  \BBB.zip \CCC.xls  
  \DDD.txt    
  \EEE.zip \111.pdf  
    \222.zip \333.txt

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:

my_archive.zip      
  \7Folder \FFF.doc  
  \7Folder \GGG.ppt  
  \BBB.zip \CCC.xls  
  \DDD.txt    
  \EEE.zip \111.pdf  
    \222.zip \333.txt

If you set the limit to 4 files, the following files are scanned:

  • FFF.doc
  • GGG.ppt
  • CCC.xls
  • DDD.txt
Note:

For files that contain embedded files, Worry-Free Business Security Services 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.
