Can I run a virus scan for my files on my account online?

Can I run a virus scan for my files on my account online?

New member | Level 2

I would like to run a virus scan on all files in my companies dropbox.  I only sync a small portion of the total files to my devices.  I have ran the scan on those files on my devices, but I am concerned about the large number of files I am not linked to .

 

Is there a way to run a virus scan on all files in my business account?

The only way would be if they were on your device

That said as long as your scanner does real time scans it will scan anything which you download to open, so, if something has a virus in online its safe as it will be detected as soon as you download it.
