Surprised I dont see this in search...  I have Akeeba backup running on cron every 2 hours.  I have Admin tools PHO scanner running 2x a day on cron.  The backups are being marked possible threats.  No worries, just a small annoyance, but can this be adjusted to not mark akeeba backups as possible threats?

that actually makes sense, since they are compressed large files, so they could trigger Admin Tools detection system. You can exclude that folder from your automatic scan in order to speed up the operations.
