How to completely exclude an optical drive from scanning file contents while they are accessed?
According to this article:
When I insert a media onto a CD/DVD/BD optical drive, no scanning will take place as soon as the media is inserted. But every file on the media is scanned when I get access to any of them.
Now my question.
I have about 30 SEP 12.1.2 (RU2) clients and a SEP Manager installed onto a Windows 2003 R2 x86 server.
In a clinic, a customer uses several CD-ROMs, each containing a lot (several hundreds) of radiological images. When he browse them with a viewer, Symantec Endpoint Protection starts to check for viruses, and image browsing freezes for several minutes, making impossible to practically use the application.
How can I prevent every type of CD scanning by SEP Manager policy? Exclusions works, but only by drive letter, I wonder if there is a smarter way to specify it, maybe by device type... This method could be more effective, especially on some clients where the DVD/CD-ROM drive is not linked to the usual D: letter...
