eScan logs Folder large files & 100% Hard Disk utilization

Hello,

In many computers running eset  6.6.2052.0 we encounter the below problem:

Hard disk is 100% usage and with very high response time.

After some research we find that in folder C:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET Endpoint Security\Logs\eScan there is excessive writing and reading in the dat files. This files are in total 20GB by now.

1.Which of the ESET option or options creates, writes and reads to this dat log files and how I disable it centrally from Eset ERA?

2.Is this some kind of malfunction?

PS: The screenshots are taken after we disable the schedule of Log maintenance and the Boot sector Scan in Startup scan and reboot the computer. It seems that this resolves the writing in the dat files but reading in these files remains.

Thanks,

Peter

Most likely you have enabled logging of all scanned files in a particular on-demand scanner profile which causes large on-demand scanner logs to be generated.

Hello Marcos,

You mean the option: Log all objects, in Antivirus -> Startup Scan -> THREATSENSE PARAMETERS -> OTHER: Log all objects ?

Thanks,

Peter

Yes, that's it.
