Scan Enhancement Request

Recommended Posts

When a scheduled scan is running it is VERY slow and I UNDERSTAND that this intended by design to not interfere with other tasks.
However, there is no method to tell the scan to speed up as if I had manually started the scan.

Today on a SSD, it had taken 4 hours to scan 200,000+ files.  Ultimately, I gave up, started the scan over and it finished quickly. That said, it had to re-scan the 200,000+ files that it had just finished.

Please allow a scan that is already running to be commanded to speed up to the manual scan speed.

Thank you.
