About virtual protection scopes

Kaspersky Security for Windows Server can scan not only existing folders and files on hard drives and removable drives, but also drives that are connected to the protected device temporarily, for example, common cluster drives that are dynamically created on the protected device by various applications and services.

If all device objects are included in the protection scope, these dynamic nodes will automatically be included in the protection scope. However, if you want to specify special values for the security settings of these dynamic nodes or if you have selected only part of the device for protection, then in order to include virtual drives, files or folders in the protection scope, you will first have to create them in the Application Console: that is, specify the virtual protection scope. The drives, files and folders created will exist only in the Application Console, but not in the file structure of the protected device.

If, while creating a protection scope, all subfolders or files are selected without the parent folder being selected, then all virtual folders or files that appear in it will not automatically be included in the protected scope. "Virtual copies" of these should be created in the Application Console and added to the protection scope.
