    Yes! But there is an option to limit the size of compound files that will be unpacked/scanned, if you need to use it!

    Essentially iChecker is technology that increases scan speed by excluding certain objects from the scan, based on algorithm that takes into account the release date of the program database, the date the object was last scanned, and modifications to the scan settings.

    iSwift is complimentary technology that builds on iChecker technology for computers using an NTFS file system.

    In other words the enhance the scanning experience by reducing scan times on successive scans.

    iswift works only on files on NTFS drives and not on files inside an archive. ichecker is limited to specific file types and numbers, so it's probably not used for that.
