Forcing files to be rescanned

Antivirus Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

With the appearance of a new virus and release of antivirus software updates, it is important to rescan all files, including those that have not changed since the last time they were scanned.

Be aware that rescanning migrated files increases file recall times for users (recall time + scan time) the first time each file is accessed.

  1. Navigate to Home > Data Protection > Virus Scanning to display the Virus Scanning page.
  2. Click the Request Full Scan link.
    This marks every file as unscanned, so the file will be scanned the next time it is accessed.
