AMCore now:

  • Automatically scans the system process as read-only, treating the scan as a Low Risk process, which reduces the file I/O bottlenecks for network-related file access.
  • Reduces the number of file cleanup events that caused unnecessary scanning.
  • Delays on-write scanning for 500 milliseconds, which reduces unnecessary scanning. This delay optimizes scanning for all files so that the file is scanned after 500 milliseconds of the last write I/O activity.
