How do I select the drives I want scanned?

You cannot do that. Secunia scans all hard drives by default.

What U can do is create an ignore rule for a drive that is used purely for backup purposes & the i386 folder.

CREATING A GLOBAL IGNORE RULE
=============================

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

2.In the RULE NAME BOX insert something like MY BACKUP DRIVE

3.In the RULE BOX type D:\ (or the drive to ignore)

4.Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE

All drives will continue to be scanned by default but the result from the drives ignored will not be published.

Thank you so much for the information! I have a separate backup external drive and it has been very frustrating getting the warnings about that drive.

Thanks again and Happy New Year!
