Still Infected files on removable devices

Created: 05 Dec 2012 | 5 comments

My SEPM has clients that show "Still Infected" files on removable media, whether it be a CD or thumb drive.  Even when the device is removed, it does not clear.  The only solution I've found is to put in a clean disc or thumb drive, let SEP scan it and then it clears the "Still Infected" flag.

Has anyone seen this or know of a better way to resolve this issue?

Thanks Brian.  I'll give these a go and see if they clear it out correctly.

It's a known behaviour of SEP.... not sure if this changed in SEP 12.1?
