On-demand database scan

For each selected web site, its hierarchy of folders and files is scanned. Each file, user document or other SharePoint internal file is stored in a temporary file which is then sent to the kernel for scanning. If there are also earlier versions of a specific file and the Scan document versions feature is enabled, then the earlier versions are scanned first.

Scan in read-only mode

Infected documents will not be cleaned or deleted. The delete rule action will not be applied.

Scan document versions

If other versions of the same document exist within the SharePoint database, these will also be scanned.

On document delete restore the latest clean version

When an infected document is deleted, earlier non-infected versions are scanned. If earlier versions that are not infected exist, the most recent clean version will be restored and made the current version. This option is not available when Scan in read-only mode is enabled.

Last modified

Select time restriction from the drop-down menu to scan only files modified within a specific time interval and skip scanning of not modified files outside the interval.


Scan targets

A window will open where you can scan all targets or select your specific targets. For more information see On-demand database scan targets.

Number of concurrent downloads

This parameter allows scanning in parallel by multiple threads. When set to 0, the legacy sequential processing is used.
