NOTE: VSE 8.8 Patch 2 Hotfix 719860 has been superseded by VSE 8.8 Patch 2 Hotfix 846582, which is now attached to this article in VSE880HF846582.zip.
VSE 8.8 Patch 2 Hotfix 846582 adds support for a Delayed Write Scan mode of operation that delays all scans of modified files to lower priority background threads.
The Delayed Write Scan setting is disabled by default and you can enable it with Hotfix 846582.
- To maintain security when enabling this mode, ensure the Scan on Read setting is enabled. Additionally, removable media and network file share write operations will still be scanned immediately on Close.

Why install this hotfix?
The purpose of the hotfix is to create a smoother handling of Write Scan operations. Sometimes VSE can have conflicts with third-party applications, because VSE is scanning the file while the third-party applications want to change it again.
This is an optional hotfix, but recommended and possibly critical if you are facing a compatibility or performance issue due to write scanning.
