Scheduling a sensitive data scan

Coro enables you to create scheduled endpoint device sensitive data scans for storage drives on Windows and macOS devices. These scans activate at a specified time and frequency, for example, every Friday at 3 a.m.


If a device is offline during a scheduled scan, the scan automatically starts when the device reconnects to Coro.
