Manual Scan: Target Tab

  1. In the Scan Settings section, configure the required settings.
    1. Under Files to scan, select from the following:
      • All scannable files: Includes all scannable files. Unscannable files are password protected files, encrypted files, or files that exceed the user-defined scanning restrictions.


        This option provides the maximum security possible. However, scanning every file requires a lot of time and resources and might be redundant in some situations. Therefore, you might want to limit the amount of files the agent includes in the scan.

      • File types scanned by IntelliScan: Scans files based on true-file type.

      • Files with specified extensions: Manually specify the files to scan based on their extensions. Separate multiple entries with commas.


        Wildcard support for file extensions in scan settings is different from scan exclusion settings. The * character replaces zero to many characters.

        For example, scanning can still detect the .COM extension when COM* is specified.

    2. Select Scan mapped drives and shared folders on the network to scan directories physically located on other endpoints, but mapped to the local endpoint.
    3. Select Scan compressed files to scan the specified number of compression layers within an archived file

      Scanning through more layers may detect malware intentionally buried within a compressed archive, however, the scan may affect system performance.

  2. In the Advanced Settings section, configure the required settings.

    Scan boot area
