Number of files scanned almost halved after consecutive scans? [Closed]

I have done full scans the past few days and the first scan took a while. It reported it scanned 2 million files. I did another scan back to back and kaspersky reported scanning 1.5 million. The next day I scan and it reports only 1 million files.

My question is why is this happening? I'm not deleting files on my system. The scanned files seems to get lower each scan.

Hello ThatBuild,
Also, check [Scan only new and changed files] setting: https://help.kaspersky.com/KIS/2019/en-US/85746.htm


Thanks!
