Customizing Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh About Floppy Scan Preferences
About Floppy Scan Preferences
A common way for a virus to enter your computer is through floppy disks or other removable media. To prevent this from happening, Auto-Protect scans these items each time they are inserted into your computer.
In Mac OS X v10.1, when Auto-Protect is on, all files on Hierarchical File System (HFS) Standard and HFS Plus Extended disks (which are all standard Mac-formatted disks) are scanned when they are created or modified. This also applies to removable media when they are mounted, if they are HFS or HFS Plus formatted.
To set Floppy Scan Preferences in Mac OS 8.1-9.x
In the Preferences dialog box, click the Floppy Scan icon.
