incremental .DAT, or iDAT files

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Does anyone know if  McAfee still publishes incremental DAT files? The
current DAT files (Scan.dat) are very large and could be a pain to
update over dial up.


Thankj you

Yes, they are still thereon the FTP server.  However, if there is a long period
between
updates a full update may be warranted.

I looked at ftp://ftp.mcafee.com/pub/datfiles/ and do not find the
incremental ones.. Is this the wrong FTP address for the Incremental
DAT files??

It would appear from glancing at my inbound file link that all
their files are quite large - some near 30Meg.  I do remember
some years back that their update files were substantially
smaller, as was the entire program... Until the Windoze bloat
pathogen took hold of them. ;-)
