Hi YZ009,

"Thumbs up" to the advice above about creating exclusions for MS SQL files.  SEP cannot scan the contents of database files (it is not designed to open and examine those contents)- it is best to take measures so that it will not even try.  This can make the computer more efficient and avoid risk of possible corruption.

All the best,

Mick

With thanks and best regards,

Mick
