Clearing "File IDs excluded during scans"

Something is not clear in the NS product manual, so I have a question. 

One of the options in the Antivirus Settings, then under the Scans and Risks tab, then under Exclusions/Low Risks, is the option to Clear file IDs excluding during scans.  The manual says that NS will then scan all files on the computer.

But it doesn't say what happens after that. On subsequent full system scans does it continue scanning all files in the computer?   Or does it gradually build up reputation data and exclude files again?  i.e., is it just a one-time "reset" so to speak?

Thanks.

Re: Clearing "File IDs excluded during scans"

Hi, mesquitebean. Does this explain the situation ?

Clearing IDs of files that are excluded during scans

Your Norton product tags all trusted and favorable files with Trusted and Good trust levels. When a file is tagged as Trusted or Good, the Norton product does not scan this file again. This can improve the scan performance of the Norton product on your computer.

However, if you want the Norton product to scan all the files in your computer, you must clear the reputation information of the excluded files.

When you clear IDs of files that are excluded during scans, it might take a longer time to complete scan.

Your Norton product excludes the Trusted and Good files from being scanned. However, if you want the Norton product to scan all the files in your computer, you must clear the reputation information of the excluded files.

To clear IDs of files that are excluded during scans

  1. In the Norton product main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Antivirus.

  3. In the Antivirus settings window, click the Scans and Risks tab.

  4. Under Exclusions / Low Risks, in the Clear file IDs excluded during scans row, click Clear All.

  5. In the Warning window, click Yes.

Also, in regards to reducing scans if required, you can go to the main UI, Security/Run Scans select Norton Insight, and let that run.

When finished in the drop down menu, select All Files. After that completes, Norton will only scan new and changed files.

Re: Clearing "File IDs excluded during scans"

Thanks, but that is not exactly what I was asking. It is a prelude to what I was asking, however. That info was what I had read in the product manual, which is what prompted my question. My question above was what happens with subsequent scans. After that scan of every file on the system, does it automatically rebuild the reputation data and exclusions again? i.e., after clearing the file IDs, does it always scan all the files, or was that just a one-time deal?

Re: Clearing "File IDs excluded during scans"

My understanding is that the files get scanned and classified the one time, and are subsequently not scanned unless changes are detected.

Someone more knowledgable than me, may care to comment ?
