  • Expert preference setting to prevent Sentry controlling clamd if you already have your own clamd monitoring setup*
    * If you enable this expert preference setting, ClamXav Sentry will NOT monitor clamd at all; it will assume clamd is always running. To enable it, run the following in Terminal:
    defaults write uk.co.markallan.clamxav clamdControlledExternally -bool YES; killall cfprefsd
  • Expert preference setting to cause Sentry to prompt for FUSE filesystems which report their size as 0MB
    defaults write uk.co.markallan.clamxav.clamxav-sentry PromptForZeroSizedVolumes -bool YES; killall cfprefsd
  • Expert preference setting to disable prompts for /home and /net - only needed if you enable the expert pref for zero-sized volumes above.
    defaults write uk.co.markallan.clamxav.clamxav-sentry IgnoreSystemVolumes -bool YES; killall cfprefsd
  • Expert preference setting to change the threshold at which Sentry will prompt to scan new disks. Default value is 100 MB.
    defaults write uk.co.markallan.clamxav.clamxav-sentry LargeVolumePromptSizeInMBs XX; killall cfprefsd
