It has been observed that McAfee Anti-Virus software can cause Macrium Reflect File and Folder backups to run for an excessively long time during the 'Determining files to copy' phase.  It appears that McAfee Anti-Virus is reading every single file during this phase of the backup process. 

There is a McAfee KB article on this problem but their solution doesn't appear relevant to all McAfee products.

If the above linked article doesn't resolve the problem then to stop this unwanted behaviour please disable McAfee 'Real-Time Scanning'.  



Applies to: McAfee LiveSafe, McAfee Total Protection, McAfee Antivirus Plus, McAfee Internet Security & McAfee Antivirus
