Hello,

Once a full scan has been made, the next one is automatically scheduled to happen 7 days later, same time.
But what happens if the user is not logged in at that precise time; does PSI keep the missed scan in memory in order to run the task as soon as possible ?
(I had a look at the FAQ but didn't find anything - 'hope I didn't miss it ;-))

Thanks for your assistance !

Hi,

Yes, the PSI will run a full scan at the first chance it gets after 7 days. So if you only start it after 8 days, it will scan then.

Since this is not a very frequent question, I don't think we will add it to the FAQ. If we get requests to add it we will obviously reconsider.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Emil, for your quick reply.

As I'm using this computer everyday and runnig manually, at least, one full scan per week (after I updated a program in order to check if everything is ok), the 7 days delay is always postponed; so I just wanted to be sure by posting here, convinced that I would quickly receive an answer.

I just mentioned the FAQ, not to suggest that this question should be added to it, but simply to inform that I already looked through it.

I will now lock this thread.

Thanks again.
