  • I don't think One Care can do this. If all of the computers that access your NAS have malware protection it is unlikely, though not impossible, to have infected files on your NAS device.

  • You can scan the NAS location manually. Open Windows Explorer, browse to the NAS device, right click the folder you wish to scan and select Scan for viruses.
