New scan engine that works better on large file systems

I released the new scan engine in version today. This is the scan process that I’ve had available as a BETA for a couple months but it was not ready for release until now. It take longer because it breaks the scan into smaller processes that complete independently of the scan initiation process. This has a better success rate (especially on server with lots of files or minimal memory) and allows for better error handling.

So there are now two types of scans:

  • Quick Scan – Good for small file systems, fast servers, or sites that have post restriction.
  • Complete Scan – Good for large file systems, servers with irregular permission issues, or low memory allocation.

The Automatic Fix process and File Viewer have been improved too. It loads nicer now and you can move this new pop-up window around on the page :-).

Please give me feedback on these new features and scan options.

Aloha, Eli

  1. I would like to see a “This site last received a” type of scan “on” date. kind of banner or tag to prevent me from repeatedly scanning a site. Might this be possible in an upcoming release?


    • The last scan time can be found on the View Quarantine page. I think it a good idea to put this info on the Scan Setting page to though. I see if I can get this into my next release.

      Thanks for the feedback.
