Hello all,
I run a multi boot system, and would like to be able to select PSI to check only the system that i am on at the time . ( as i have 5 OS's ) it gets confusing keeping track of all the drives , when PSI scans. (results are for all drives) Question is there any way to do this? Thanks ...Regards Fred

You cannot stop PSI scanning all the partitions on your system. You can stop it reporting on selected partitions by setting up ignore rules. Use the settings tab in Advanced Mode.

ddmarhall,
Hello and thanks for the reply, Question : How exactly would you set up a rule ? Does it have to be in a programing language ? or use "notepad" etc. Let me explain... I run several OS's with no Patches or updates, i provide my own security measures. So... when secunia scans it freaks out and i get tons of "alerts" end of life \ not patched etc. (all lumped together) a gigantic pain.what would be nice is that you could just select what drive that you want scanned . As i have no intention of ever "updating" some of my systems. Maybe you could pass this suggestion along to whoever needs to see it . ( not familiar with your forum ) I think that this would be an improvement as many people are now multiple booting various systems.Regards Fred

To set up an ignore rule all you need to do is click 'create ignore rule' on the settings page and put the path of what you want to ignore in the 'Rule' field. You can put anything you like as the name. Anything in that path and its subfolders will not be reported. For example if you don't want to see anything for drive D: enter D:\ as the rule. You can set up such rules for each disk you don't want a report on. Secunia will still scan all the disks, so it won't save any time. I'm not sure what will happen with you Linux partition if it isn't NTFS or FAT.

Most of the people on this forum are users, but Secunia monitor it and I'm sure they will pick up your suggestion.

ddmarshall,

Hello, i just wanted to update and thank you for your help. The create ignore rules suggestion has worked ... Had to make a new rule for each drive... B:\, D:\, E:\, F:\ and repeated for each OS when booted . Thanks again, Regards Fred
