On access Scanning slows backup time by 40-60% RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi,

     

    We have forefront now deployed to approx 160 of our servers, and have noticed that the backup times are now taking 40-60% longer due to the on access scanning in the policy.

     

    As a temporary measure we have disabled this, but need a real solution fast.

     

    Please any ideas??

     

    Thanks

    Hi!

     

    There is an option "Do not scan files accessed by these processes:"

    You can include your backup process in this list.

    But now you can't use GPO for that.

    Only through Client Security agent or registry.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Forefront\Client Security\1.0
