While KAV process is running error being displayed "The target volume does not support symbolic links"

Hello Community,

on a computer (latest Windows 10, KAV latest version) I see a strange issue when copying files via xcopy to a NAS (Synology) share: “The target volume does not support symbolic links.”

The copy process starts to transfer certain files and suddenly stops while copying an arbitrary file. Then it displays the stated message.

Now I did some analyzing and testing and eventually found out, that completely shutting down (not uninstalling) KAV solves this issue. Reenabling KAV will raise the same behavior reproduceable.

Any idee what I can do?

Regards and Thanks

Seems to be fixed with the latest KAV-Update.
