October 25, 2023
The file resource tree or list displays the nodes to which you have read-access based on the configured Microsoft Windows security settings.
Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows covers the following predefined protection scopes:
- Local hard drives. Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows protects files on the device hard drives.
- Removable drives. Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows protects files on external devices, such as CDs or removable drives. All removable drives, individual disks, folders or files can be included in or excluded from the protection scope.
- Network. Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows protects files that are written to network folders or read from them by applications running on the device. Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows does not protect files when such files are accessed by applications from other protected devices.
- Virtual drives. Virtual folders, files, and drives temporarily connected to the device can be included in the protection scope, for example, common cluster drives.
By default, you can view and configure predefined protection scopes in the scope list; you can also add predefined scopes to the list during its formation in the protection scope settings.
By default, the protection scope includes all predefined areas except virtual drives.
Virtual drives created using a SUBST command are not displayed in the protected device's file resource tree in the Application Console. To include objects on the virtual drive in the protection scope, include the device folder associated with the virtual drive in the protection scope.
Connected network drives will also not be displayed in the protected device's file resource list. To include objects on network drives in the protection scope, specify the path to the folder that corresponds to this network drive in UNC format.
