Background: I had bad sectors on my hard-drive (thanks Maurice for your help sorting it)and so last week had a new hard drive fitted. I now have three drives: C (current windows), E (old windows, where all my stuff has backed up & saved) and F.
PCWorld have labelled this F drive as "Old RP". It's my former C drive, with bad sectors but which can now be used for storge. The disk is 3.72 GB used and 2.2 GB free. There's only one folder showing in it, a Recovery folder with 212 KB.

Problem: I'm 75% through reinstalling my software and after the initial traumas of dozens & dozens of updates - when Secunia found 12 insecure/end of life programs - I'm now down to the final one.
It's NAV 2005, a very old file. I now use NIS 2010.
It's path is shown as
F:\I386\Apps\APP23357\src\NAV\EXTERNAL\NORTON\APP\ NAVAPSVC.EXE
but I can't find it, nor does a 'search' including hidden files.

Is it safe for me to create an 'ignore' rule for it?

Hi taffy ,

Your F is a "storage drive" , but more specifically I386 files are not accessible by the bad guys so you can ignore it/the folder .

Happy soldering/soldiering :))

many thanks Anthony. I can now celebrate being back to 100% again!
But I don't think I'll gat my soldering iron out - I am to computers what Harold Shipman was to longevity.
