    I just discovered either a bug or a problem, I am not sure which but if someone can help me work it out I would appreciate it. Here is the situation. I work with a laptop at home and travel (no desktop). At home I have an external hard disk (F:) that I use for backups and storage, it stays at home does not travel with me. I set up a profile to scan:

    1. Memory
    2. Registry
    3. C:\
    4. F:\ (external hard dirve)

    I noticed tonight when the scheduled scan took place numbers 1, 2, 3 all got scanned but not 4 (external F:). I looked at the profile and sure enough the only things listed in the scheduled scan were numbers 1, 2, 3 & not 4 (external F:) so I added it again did the scan and all was good. Then to experiment I shut down the computer and unplugged the external hard drive (F:) and restarted the computer. Checked the profile and sure enough numbers 1, 2, 3 were there, but not 4 (external F:).

    I then shut down the computer plugged F: back in and restarted the computer. Checked the profile and numbers 1, 2, 3 were there but not 4 (external F:).

    My conclusion is that once the external hard drive is unplugged and the computer restarted it is erased permanately from the profile. Here are my questions:

    1. Is this a bug or is it normal?

    2. If it is a bug will it be fixed?

    3. If it is normal is there a way around it?

    Thanks in advance,

    1. Normal (by design)
    2. Not a bug but we think about it to change this because we didn't thought about that.
    3. No currently not.

    Vinzenz,

    Thanks for your prompt and kind response. I hope this will be changed as schedulng is one of the big reasons I am paying for ewido. As it is my scheduling is more or less worthless, because one of my drives does not get scanned unless I ask for it each time. Somewhat defeats the purpose of scheduling.

    Have a good day,
