Issue of Kaspersky Security 10 for Windows Server compatibility with backup systems

This article concerns Kaspersky Security 10.1.2 for Windows Server (version 10.1.2.996).

 
 
 
 

Issue

When Kaspersky Security for Windows Server performs on-demand scan tasks, the time when each scanned file was last accessed is updated. After the scan, Kaspersky Security 10 for Windows Server resets the time when the file was last accessed to the initial value.

This behavior can affect the work of backup systems by causing creation of backup copies for files that haven’t been changed. This can also cause false detections in file change tracking applications, e g. CommVault File Activity Anomaly Alert.

Solution

Disable resetting of the last accessed time after the file was scanned:

  1. Open the registry editor.
  2. Go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\WSEE\10.1\Environment section.
  3. Create a DWORD parameter under the name DontRestoreFileTimes.
  4. Set the value for this parameter to 00000001.
