    Is anyone else having problems with a scheduled scan of network drives ?

    I have set up a profile to scan local and network drives - when I run this manually it scans them OK but when this is same profiles is set for a scheduled scan only the local drives are checked.

    Windows XP Professional SP1
    NOD v2 with latest updates

    Hmm.. This is just a guess, but... The tasks are very likely not run as the current user, rather as system or something, and that doesn't have the drives mapped.

    If that's the case, I think the "easiest" way to do scheduled scanning is using the standard task scheduler in windows, and execute NOD32.exe with the appropriate parameters instead. Then you can specify the username/password... Not sure if the network connections are still available though ;P

    Best regards,
    Anders - tired and guessing

    Wrote a batch file containing :-

    c:
    cd \
    cd progra~1
    cd eset
    nod32 C: F: V: /scroll+ /quit+ /arch+ /pack+ /all /heurdeep

    Scheduled it to run through Scheduled tasks and gave it my username and password - worked OK

    Would like it built into NOD32 but working around the problem at the moment.

    This workaround worked fine for drive scanning but what workaround can I use to scan my email folders as they too are located on one of the network drives.

    Is starting the NOD32 service as me instead of system an option ? Is there another command line switch to scan email folders ?

    Thanks
    Richard

    The parameter "/mailbox+" will enable the "[ ] Email files" in the Setup tab.

    Thanks for that - will the mailbox switch find my email DBX/PST files and scan them or do I need to specify more on the command line.

    Incidently running the NOD Service as my user did not work.

    Is there a way of loading an existing profile and then simulating pressing the SCAN or the CLEAN button

    i.e.
    NOD32 /config=myprofile /scan
    NOD32 /config=myprofile /clean

    If I run NOD32 /config=myprofile it simple loads NOD32 with the profile.

    "/clean" will work.. and, you will probably combine that with "/prompt" or "/rename" (action to take if cleaning fails), and "/quit+"

    Start NOD32 with the parameter "/?", or check "Misc dialogs -> Command line parameters" in the help file for description of most of the parameters.

    Best regards,
