Multiple scan schedules?

I have VirusScan 13.15 downloaded through ISP=Comcast.

Is there a way to set up multiple partial scans?  For instance scan MyDocuments Monday at 4am, MyPictures Tuesday at 4am etc. I set up a complete scan and was planning to do it every day at 4am, but the first one ran unitl mid afternoon before finishing the complete scan of C:=16gb and E:=320gb

I would prefer to break it up into segments that would finish in 2 hours or so, trusting the active scan component to watch in between scheduled scans.

Thanks, Joe Harrington

Typo above C:=160gb

We've been suggesting that kind of flexibility for ages and were unsuccessful I'm afraid.  Manual scans can be a little more selective but not the automatic ones.
