Because iFolder is a cross-platform distributed solution, there is a possibility of a virus infection on one platform migrating across the iFolder server to other platforms, and vice versa. You should enforce client-based virus scanning to prevent viruses from entering the corporate network.
Scanning the ..\simias\WorkArea\ directory for viruses causes problems with synchronization if a virus is detected on download. The ..\simias\WorkArea\ directory is where iFolder stages files for download from the server. Users should set their virus scanners to avoid scanning the ..\simias\WorkArea directory. Scanners can detect the virus when iFolder moves the infected file from the staging area to the target iFolder.
