Full Virus Scan on File Server

By chris.murray ·
I have a file server with about 5TB of data on it. I run a full virus scan every Weds. night. The problem is that it takes about 4 days to run and it kill sthe proc so my users are affected. My question would be: What is the standard for doing full virus scans on file servers of this size? I don't see how it would be acceptable to affect the users like this but I don't see many options. Thanks for any info!

Once maybe

I had the same problem. I did a complete scan once, over a holiday weekend I think, then I just scanned the files when they were created, accessed, etc. NOT when they were backed up, that will kill the server.
