    Default scanning network file

    Is there a way to scan a file on my local network (on the back-up drives) before reloading it?

    Can you see the file from your system or it is backed up on tape in a specific format that is not readly readable? For the latter case I am afraid you can't scan it beforehand.

    .... and if you right click on it with the mouse, can you see an option to scan it with ZA?
    Or it is just a "virtual" access?

    I found the file and the scan option. To my great surprise, the scan of the 2.6 Gb file took only a few seconds over my home network -- seems very fast!

    Thanks for your advice!

    A file of 2.6 Gb? Then it must be a compressed file. ZA may have scanned it but not inside. What is the extension of the file?
