The following types of protection scopes can be applied in the Anti-Cryptor task:

  • Predefined. You can use the default protection scope, which includes all the device's shared folders in the scan. Applied if the All shared network folders on the server setting is selected.
  • User. You can manually configure the protection scope by selecting the folders that need to be included in the encryption protection scope. Applied if the Only specified shared folders setting is selected.

You can only use a local path to configure the protection scope for the Anti-Cryptor task.

To configure a protection scope for the Anti-Cryptor task:

  1. Expand the Managed devices node in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console tree.
  2. Select the administration group for which you want to configure application settings.
  3. Perform one of the following actions in the details pane of the selected administration group:
    • To configure application settings for a group of protected devices, select the Policies tab and open the Properties: <Policy name> window.
    • To configure the application for a single protected device, select the Devices tab and open the Application settings window.

      If an active Kaspersky Security Center policy is applied to a device and blocks changes to application settings, then these settings cannot be edited in the Application settings window.

  4. In the Network activity control section, click the Settings button in the Anti-Cryptor subsection.

    The Anti-Cryptor window opens.

  5. On the Protection scope tab, select the folders that Kaspersky Security for Windows Server will scan when executing the Anti-Cryptor task:
    • All shared network folders on the protected device.
    • Only specified shared folders.
  6. To specify the device's shared folders, that you want to include in the encryption protection scope:
    1. Select Only specified shared folders and click the Add button.

      The Select folder to add window opens.

    2. Click the Browse button to select a folder, or enter the folder manually.
    3. Click OK.
  7. Click OK in the Anti-Cryptor window.

The specified settings are saved.
