for incoming and outgoing file and program activity' on Windows hosts.

The policy setting allows to configure monitoring for incoming and outgoing files, without having to
turn off monitoring entirely. It is recommended for use on servers where there is a lot of incoming
and outgoing file activity but for performance reasons need to have scanning disabled for a
particular scan direction. The appropriate configuration should be evaluated based on the server role.
Note that the configuration is only honored for NTFS volumes. For any other file system type, full
monitoring of file and program activity will be present on those volumes.");
