Select locations to scan for scheduled scan

I have the Comcast version of Security Center v8.1. It's currently configured to run a scheduled scan each Saturday at 2AM. The scan inspects two internal drives, plus two external USB drives. Between the four drives, I have about 2TB of disk space and the scan takes approximately 14 hours. The two external drives are for backup purposes and I don't really want to scan them as part of the scheduled scan. However, I don't see any way to limit the locations that the scheduled scan inspects. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance for any help.

RE: Select locations to scan for scheduled scan

Unfortunately that ability was removed 2 or 3 versions back. Until our frequent suggestions to reinstate it are fulfilled you'll have to disconnect those external drives.

You can choose when doing a manual scan however, so you may wish to do that and cancel the scheduled one.

Thanks Peter. The backups run automatically at night so instead of disconnecting the drives, I'll run a manual scan each week. At least with the manual scan I can specify the drives I want to scan.
