When running a command line scan, the scan fails and you see the error message:
sav32cli.exe has encountered an error and needs to close
First seen in Sophos Endpoint Security and Control
When sav32cli scans a corrupt file or sector it may fail.
To determine which file is causing SAV32cli to fail, use the command below. This command displays all files as they are scanned them and lists them in C:\FileError.txt.
sav32cli.exe -all -archive -dn -ns -p=C:\FileError.txt
