How long does it take for a background scan to finish once it has started?
The Standard background scan runs in a low-priority mode to consume low system resources and pauses when the system resources are needed by other processes. The standard background scan processes 20 files per minute at maximum. The time to complete depends on the available system resources and the number of files on the system being scanned.
The Expedited background scan runs in a high-priority mode and consumes extra resources to complete. The expedited background scan is optimized for speed and processes 100 files per minute. The time to complete depends on the available system resources and the number of files on the system being scanned.
