Exclude my External 1TB drive during Tune-Up RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently replaced my 100GB external backup drive with a 1TB unit.  Now, Tuneup is taking forever.  It starts at 2am and at 8AM it's still crunching on the external drive.  I emailed Tech Support and was told that it's not possible to exclude a drive.  This seems like a common option (remember it in Symantec products).  Is there any other way to skip having onecare scan and defrag a backup drive?

  • There is no way to configure the Defrag part of Tune-up, but you can exclude the external drive from being scanned by opening OneCare, clicking Change Settings - Virus and Spyware tab, Exclusions button. Use the Add Folder button on the next dialog to add the external drive to the list not to be scanned.
