Corrupt files on network storage

Created: 18 Nov 2012 | 2 comments


I'm using SEP V11 on windows 7, and recently I have attached a network drive (NAS) to my home network (IOMEGA Clound Edition).

When I copy files to it from my Win7 PC, most of the files become corrupt in the transfer... When I disable SEP, the files are allright!!! This leads me to believe that SEP is corrupting the files...

For the moment, I disable the option "Analyse files on Network drive" and it seems that everything works. But I'm no more protected from virus from network drive ! So this solution is not very "clean".

Thanks in advance for your answer.

What version of 11.x are you on? Latest is RU7 MP3.

Autoprotect would still scan files locally and catch any virus. What option did you uncheck?

Whenever a file is copied modified or executed those files will get scanned by symantec as per the default Antivirus & Spyware policy. 

If you dont have protection on Network shared files. When a infection comes into ur filesystem automatically it will be scanned by symantec scan. RTVSCAN. Real Time Virus Scan engine so those files will get caught. So no worries Symantec will take care of those infection. 

All you need to do is make sure the Virus defintiion are up to date..
