Scheduled scan

I go to Virus Protection>Advanced>Custom Scan>Default locations to scan
I check only C: and 😧 drives but when the scan runs at 1:00AM Sunday morning it scans every drive I have including L: and M: which are large and don't need scanned.
Why is it doing this?????

RE: Scheduled scan

You can only specify drives/locations to scan on a manual scan. It's a feature we've been asking for since way back when and so far we've been ignored.
The 2010 products are just about to enter public beta testing and it will be interesting to see if it is, at last, included.
Until then I have no idea what features will be new.
