When you are restoring data to a device, with the Malicious File Scan feature , you have the option to scan the data for malicious files and for pre-defined file hashes. This ensures that the restored data is clean and devoid of viruses and malware. You can scan the data irrespective of the restore location.

When Malicious File Scan is enabled, you will see the Malicious File Scan section in the Restore Data window.

Toggle the button to enable the scan. If the scan is mandated during a data restore activity then you will not be able to disable it. Contact your Druva Cloud administrator for more details.

However, the time taken to restore the data increases when the scan is enabled. You can view the progress of the scan job from the Jobs page. There is an option to cancel the scan job if you feel it’s taking longer than what you expected and restoring the files is urgent.

  • Malicious file scan is not available for emails.
