Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 2.3 - Creating a Backup

Antivirus Scanners and Exceptions

Antivirus scanners, an unfortunate reality of today’s world.  These applications are great for keeping bad things out, but not so great when you are running operations that move large amounts of data quickly (i.e. migrations and backup).  If at all possible, disable all antivirus and malware scanners that are actively monitoring this host machine.  If a complete disable is not possible, please strongly consider adding exceptions to the following locations:

Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 installation directory.  By default, this is C:\Program

Files\Metalogix\Essentials or C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\Essentials

Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 workspace directory.  By default, this is C:\Users\{UserDirectory}\Metavis

Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 temporary directory.  By default, this is

C:\Users\{UserDirectory}\AppData\Local\Temp

Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 backup location.  If you are storing backups locally, please add this location(s) to the exception list as well.
