How can I keep PSI from scanning my USB hard drive? Its used primarily for backups. PSI keeps telling me I have problems on this drive which backs up my computer once a week. I am using Windows 7.

Just create an ignore rule.
CREATING A GLOBAL IGNORE RULE - ALL PSI VERSIONS EXCEPT VERSION 2 (BETA)

1.Click on the SETTINGS tab>scroll to the bottom & click on CREATE IGNORE RULE

2.In the RULE NAME BOX insert the Drive detail - My Backup Drive for example.

3.In the RULE BOX type D:\ (or the drive letter U wish to ignore). If it is the i386 folder use this - C:\windows\i386

4.Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE

5.Carry out a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.

All hard drives will continue to be scanned by default but the result from the drives ignored will not be published.

Maurice,

I finally found the setting tab in the advanced section. Did exactly what you suggested and that did the job. I Thank you very much.

Thanks again,
GLS

If all your problems are now resolved could U please lock (Accept) the thread. This will prevent us both from receiving update emails from "tag on" posts.
