What is it you want to ignore on drive F:?

NOTE. If you create "Ignore Rules" for specific directories and files, the Secunia PSI will NOT inform you about any potential security risks these programs might expose your system to. We recommend that you create and use these rules with care.

Make sure ADVANCED is selected then select Settings then Create Ignore Rule then name it then enter F: then Save Ignore Rule

I would not do this as malware could exist there and the system could become infected.

Do you have your anti virus application up to date?

Get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) then update it then run a Quick scan and let it remove all it finds:

Thanks. My F drive is only written to as a backup of my C drive on which I use Avast anti virus which also scans the F drive as you will know. If you think Secunia should not ignore the F drive , please post a comment. Tia.

What is Secunia PSI detecting as insecure on the F: drive?

Make sure you are using ADVANCED mode and go to Insecure Programs then select + then look at the file or files that are detected as insecure then copy-n-paste their names here.

Currently, there are no insecure programs detected on the F drive. Since, as explained, F drive is a backup for C:, I think it follows that only data from C: is written to F: IMHO I therefore only need to scan the C drive. Or am I wrong? Thanks for your interest.

Like it or not (I do), PSI will scan all it can find on your computer . If you set an ignore rule for an item , PSI still scans it , but it will not display what it finds.

You should be completely sure that what you "hide" is & will be secure - how good is your memory?
