Advanced sanitization

Allows users to skip sanitization: data sanitization can be skipped when uploading a file if the users wishes so.

Block files without sanitization: this option will ensure that files that were not sanitized are not available for download and will reach "Blocked: No Sanitization" state.

Note

In order for this feature to work 7. Supervisor Approval must be enabled and 2. Multi-scanning and Data Sanitization must be configured.

Blocked: No Sanitization state can only be changed by administrators by approving the file in Processing History page. Also make a note of the fact that supervisors cannot allow a file in Blocked: No Sanitization state even by approving it.

Limit file size

Enable this option if you wish to set a maximum size limit when a file is uploaded.

Expiration Date

Every file has its own expiration so files will not be stored on the server permanently, this is configurable by the administrator.
