Temporary malware inspection files may not be deleted in some cases from the ScanStorage folder on a Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 client. Over time, this may cause the folder to exceed the maximum storage limit. When the limit is exceeded, new client downloads cannot finish successfully. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Access to the file is blocked.
Access to filename file is blocked due to security policy settings:
The disk space allowed for malware inspection is currently full
This problem occurs because temporary files may not be deleted if TMG is configured to use the progress notification content delivery method for the client, and then you download a file. When the download is complete, and the content is scanned, you are presented with a direct link to download the file. If you click the link, a dialog box appears that has Open
, and Cancel
options for the download. If you click Cancel
at this point, or you cancel the download after you click Save
, the temporary file for the download may not be deleted from the ScanStorage
