Use the command-line scanner to redirect console output to a log file. When the scan finishes, Symantec Protection Engine writes a summary to the log file (if you are running in log mode) and the screen. The summary shows the number of files that were scanned and the number of viruses found.
To redirect console output to a log file
Type the following argument:
where <path> is a full or partial path to a file.
The file is created if it does not exist. If the file exists, it is overwritten. Most output is sent to the log file instead of the screen when you use in this mode. Ssecls writes a series of dots to the screen as it scans files so that you can view the progress.
