Time Machine / Time Capsule / Backup Scanning

Postby alvarnell » Fri 16 Dec 2016 5:24 am

See ClamXAV FAQ Why is the scan taking so long?.

Use ClamXAV Preferences->Exclude Files tab, dragging the backup volume into the window to prevent this.

A similar recommendation applies to other types of backup as Quarantining or Deleting a file from a backup volume would almost certainly corrupt the backup, making it worthless.
