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 .
