AV On-demand scanner/On-access scanner query
Posted on 2008-10-13
I have a query regarding AV scans. From what I understand there are two types, on-demand and on-access, and I think they are as below. Could someone clarify?
On-demand: The scan that takes place at a set time each day/week etc
On-access: Real time scanning that occurs whenever someone reads a file/writes to a file.
Also, it is possible to set the AV to scan 'on read' and 'on write'. Can someone clarify what this means and what would be recommended for, say, a shared folder on a file server?
