Agent Driven Inventory Discovery - Send Scan File Behaviour

We are piloting ADID on ~100 workstations and noticed that scan files from these workstations are showing up in the "incoming" folder on the probe every 5 minutes. Also, there is a smaller (~100KB) scan file showing up in the "sending" folder every 10 minutes.

The scan-frequency is set to 3 days in the agentDrivenInventoryConfiguration.xml, and the scan file's create date on the remote host indicate the actual scanning is being done on a 3 day basis.  Looking at the registry, it appears everything is configured as expected.

So why is the scan file being uploaded so frequently?  Is there an ADID configuration parameter somewhere that regulates this behavior? Or a parameter for removing the scan file from the remote host after it was downloaded to the probe?

    Can you copy/paste the scan configuration from the agentDrivenInventoryConfiguration.xml file:

    <scan-schedule>
      <scan-frequency>7</scan-frequency><!--We want to run the scan each day-->
      <allow-scan>
        <scan-day name="Monday">  <!-- Monday from 08:00 till 12:00 -->
          <hour>8</hour>
          <hour>9</hour>
          <hour>10</hour>
          <hour>11</hour>
          <hour>12</hour>
        </scan-day>
        <scan-day name="Tuesday">  <!-- Or Tuesday from 08:00 till 12:00 -->
          <hour>8</hour>
          <hour>9</hour>
          <hour>10</hour>
          <hour>11</hour>
          <hour>12</hour>
        </scan-day>
        <scan-day name="Friday">  <!-- Or any time on Friday-->
          <hour>any</hour>
        </scan-day>
      </allow-scan>
    </scan-schedule>

    -- Hope this helps!
