Add and Configure File Storage

Add and Configure File Storage

After the FX appliance is installed and licensed, you must add and configure storage. The type of storage shares you can create are:

  • Source Files (required) – contains files that FX will scan
  • Quarantine (required) – contains files that FX has scanned and determined malicious
  • Good/Whitelist/Unknown (optional) – contains files that FX has scanned and determined safe or non-malicious

If you choose not to define optional storage shares for Good/Whitelist/Unknown files, then these files will be left in their original folders after being scanned.

To add a new storage share, go to the Storage page and click Add Storage. You may edit or delete existing Storage using the icons in the Actions column.
