What eda_scan does?

By scl1 ·
I noticed some eda_scan process, which runs all the time and consumes CPU. I am not big specialist in Mac OS so I don't know how to identify the purpose of it.

I tried to Force Quit on it but it restarted again.

Does anybody know what eda_scan does and if there any way to make it less demanding for CPU?

I had better luck at Apple forums in finding the solution. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/251319387?page=1

The eda_scan is part of Digital Guardian Data Loss Prevention software. Seems like at certain conditions it become stuck and consume too much CPU.

All about eda_scan

It is a kind of system notification caused by insufficient disk space. Mostly Antivirus causes this and users to encounter the error notification when they try to run the certain game or hard disk intensive application.

There are a couple of remedies:

Disabling Antivirus (Not recommended)
Run Application/ game as Administrator
Clear Application/ game Download Cache
Repair Application/ game Library Files
Verify Integrity Of Application/ game files
