|Issues with copying infected files to a quarantine folder.||If the immediate scanner moves or copies an infected file to a quarantine folder, the action is intercepted by the on-access scanner. This is because Spotlight indexes the quarantine folder when a file is quarantined there. |
To work around this, in the Spotlight preferences, put the quarantine folder into the list of excluded folders.
- Authentication caching in macOS may prevent you from unlocking the preferences panel immediately after an upgrade. To unlock the preferences panel, log out, then log in to your Mac again.
