Disk Optimization-Restrict which drives to include

Norton Performance includes my External Backup Drive when doing a disk optimization.  I would like to EXCLUDE that particular drive from being optimized.  How would I make that setting?

As far as I can tell there is no way to select specific drives.

Re: Disk Optimization-Restrict which drives to include

Hello L Silver

The only way that I know of is to schedule the automated scans. Go to Settings>Tasks Scheduling and schedule a time for disk optimization when your computer will not be in use and then unplug your external drive. If you have a running all the time updating program, then turn that off for the time of the optimization.

Thanks.
