I have McAfee All Access how do I exclude my Seagate external drive (e) from a full scan as I no longer have a custom scan option. Do I exclude it by drive or do I have to add each file from the folder?

external drive

In quick/scheduled and full scan external drives I think are not scanned. they are scanned only when accessed

Oh full scan is not a old type full scan it scans only files that can carry a payload

OK watched my latest full scan and yes it scans the removable drive. that surprised me. I have asked the program manager to comment but it seems you cannot exclude connected drives.

I have 1000s files on that drive so cannot exclude them .
