bugfix needed: mcafee and 2 drives with same label

mcafee needs to fix the bug where it can't handle 2+ drives with the same label. 

I ghost my drive to do backups.  MUCH faster than xcopy, which takes about 2-3 days for 800GB of data.  I have 2x2TB drives.

no, I refuse to mirror them, that's dangerous.  I have seen systems go down on failure using microsoft's "mirroring".

Re: bugfix needed: mcafee and 2 drives with same label

Sorry but not quite sure what you are asking.  You've ghosted a drive presumably to another partition but is there any reason why it doesn't have a different drive letter at least?     VirusScan should still scan it as far as I know.   What errors are you getting?

I do know that the latest versions of VirusScan wont scan the same file twice, to save time and resources, so that is what you may be encountering here.   But I back up my personal files to external drives and mine are scanned OK, so still unsure of what it is you are experiencing.
