Antivirus Scan for Scan Backup

For the Scan Backup session, you can run an antivirus scan to find the last clean restore point.

To perform the antivirus scan during the Scan Backup session, select the Scan restored points with an antivirus engine check box in the Scan Backup window.

Consider the following:

  • The antivirus software must be installed on the mount server and support the command line interface (CLI).
  • The antivirus configuration file must be located on the mount server and properly configured. For details, see Antivirus XML Configuration File.


If the antivirus is not installed or the configuration file is improperly configured, the Scan Backup session will fail.

  • For ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 9 and earlier, the Continue scanning all remaining files after the first occurrence option is supported with limitations. If the option is not selected, the antivirus scan will continue for the volume where malware activity was detected. Other volumes will not be scanned.
