Any idea if Nessus supports a different option for the same type of scan?
Is the SAN not attached to a Windows machine?  You should be able to scan the files on the drive of the Windows machine.

no it is a standalone devie with Windows Controlled Shares but is not a windows machine
Right, but a Windows machine must attach to the shares in some fashion, mapping a drive letter correct?

Run the scan on that machine.
