Can Symantec DLP run a Discover scan on an external hard drive?
Last Updated May 16, 2009
Is it possible for Discover to scan an external hard drive?
If the external drive is seen as fixed by the OS (which is usually the case for Large USB external drives) then the drive can be scanned both by Network Discover (through the administrative share <drive letter>$)and Endpoint Discover.
If the drive is seen as removable (ex: USB thumb drives) it cannot be scanned.
