Recommended Posts

the problem with Windows OS Antivirus with Nakivo backup repository files is still and issue. 

is there any roadmap that you guys will find ways to fix the repository files recognize as virus?

putting exclusion list aside, we need to know which are the folders to exclude and process to exclude.

@LeezyFrom our experience, very often, the data blocks of the VMs stored in the repository are being recognized as a threat even if they do not contain any. How often will you get such false-positive results is highly depends on how sophisticated are the detection mechanisms of the curtain Antivirus\Anti-malware software.

There is no way NAKIVO could affect this. The only solution here (as it was mentioned before) is adding the repository folder to an exception into any Antivirus\Anti-malware software.

It is highly recommended for Windows-based machines. We would recommend adding the whole repository folder to an exclusion (see the attached image) to avoid such interference in the future. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
