Forticlient scanned file count way over actual number of files
FortiClient version: 5.2.3.0633
Corporate managed environment (I am not an administrator)
This is my scenario:
I have an external drive connected via USB. I have about 250k files on this drive. If I set the whole thing to be scanned, it gets to some point and then just keeps ticking up the scanned files counter about once a second and never finishes (if I leave it overnight it'll be on 500k files 'scanned' by the morning while I know there are only about 250k). I am scanning a linux repository predominately containing .deb and .rpm files.
If I cut down the number files targeted in the scan, it seems fine. I've narrowed the threshold to about ~50k files in a batch. Batches over that number seem to hit some point and just tick up the file count without finishing. This is really annoying because in some cases I'm scanning folder-by-folder to stay under the threashold.
Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix for this? This is a task I have to execute on a semi-regular basis.
