About SafeZone Preferences
In Mac OS 8.1-9.x, you can set up as many SafeZones on your computer as you need. You can also use the SafeZone Preferences to specify certain Auto-Protect scanning behaviors.
In Mac OS X v10.1, your entire computer is considered a Universal SafeZone and as such, no customizing is needed.
