I have three partitions on my C Drive - one for each operating system. Each system is assigned a 'drive' letter. Secunia finds required updates for programs on all three systems but can't install updates on the partitionsdrives not being presently used. How can I limit the Secunia scan/search/updates to the C drive I mainly use - that is Win7 RC? Thanks.

Hi stanwhite,
You can create an ignore rule for the partition(s) involved but BY DEFAULT the Secunia PSI will continue to scan them but will not report the results.
Creating an IGNORE RULE

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

In the RULE NAME BOX insert something like MY BACKUP DRIVE

In the RULE BOX type D:\ or the letter you use for each drive

Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE

Regards, wr
