Does your scan never stop? in General Questions Posted March 17, 2008 No, I don't have the problem of multi-hour scans when I uncheck DDA. After unchecking, the scan was 40 minutes, like I mentioned in my previous post. I just re-read my last post, and the last two lines might be interpreted as being sarcastic. It wasn't meant to be at all. I should have written, "That is an impressive speed increase...", not 'decrease'. Meaning that 40 minute full scan I got was a vast improvement over my previous SAS version time of 1hour 20 minutes. Anyway, while I was off the computer earlier I put a check mark back in "Use Direct Disk Access (recommended)" and SAS stayed scanning for 2 hours before I stopped it. It gets to the end of the scan and starts from the beginning again. I think it rescanned everything about 3 times this last run LOL. You mentioned earlier it's NTFS format related. I have the Indexing Service turned off for that drive. Could that be related? And thanks for your time.
