You can disable scanning of network drives in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows policy properties. For a description of these policy properties, see the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Help.

To disable scanning of network drives:

  1. In the main menu, go to Devices Policies & profiles.
  2. Click the policy of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

    The properties window of the selected policy opens.

  3. In the policy properties, go to Application settingsEssential Threat ProtectionFile Threat Protection.
  4. Under Protection scope, disable the All network drives option.
