I refer to this now rather old thread: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=289050 Does ESET yet support the exclusion of Shadow Copies from real time scan? IMO, the product can NOT be considered SMB ready without this feature. I can not afford to have my Shadow Copy backups wrung thorugh the scanner. Other than that, I really like NOD32, and I have a 100+ seat customer awaiting conclusion of this issue. Cheers Michael.
