DLP does not scan attached USB drives during an Endpoint Discover scan
Last Updated December 03, 2008
How does Endpoint Discover handle attached storage during an Endpoint scan?
Endpoint Discover will scan any drive which the operating system reports as a "fixed" drive. In some cases, this includes USB drives. Unfortunately, the criteria that Windows uses to determine what is a "fixed" drive are not clearly specified, although size does seem to be a factor. As a general rule, most "thumb drives" will not be scanned by Endpoint Discover.
This is currently not configurable.
