Configure on-access scanning settings

You can configure OneFS to automatically scan files as they are accessed by users. On-access scans operate independently of antivirus policies.


  1. Click Data Protection > Antivirus > Settings.
  2. In the On-Access Scans area, specify whether you want files to be scanned as they are accessed.
    • To require that all files be scanned before they are opened by a user, select Enable scan of files on open, and then specify whether you want to allow access to files that cannot be scanned by selecting or clearing Enable file access when scanning fails.
    • To scan files after they are closed, select Enable scan of files on close.
  3. In the All Scans area, in the Path Prefixes field, specify the directories that you want to apply on-access settings to.
  4. Click Save Changes.
