Postpone Scheduled Scan

Users with the "Postpone Scheduled Scan" privilege can perform the following actions:

  • Postpone Scheduled Scan before it runs and then specify the postpone duration. Scheduled Scan can only be postponed once.

  • If Scheduled Scan is in progress, users can stop scanning and restart it later. Users then specify the amount of time that should elapse before scanning restarts. When scanning restarts, all previously scanned files are scanned again. Scheduled Scan can be stopped and then restarted only once.


The minimum postpone duration/elapsed time users can specify is 15 minutes. The maximum is 12 hours and 45 minutes.

You can modify the postpone time by going to Agents > Global Agent Settings on the Security Settings tab. In the Scheduled Scan Settings section, modify the Postpone Scheduled Scan for up to __ hour(s) and __ minute(s) setting.
