Add and remove Custom SafeZones
You can add as many SafeZones as are appropriate for your work habits. When you no longer need a SafeZone, you can remove it.
To add a Custom SafeZone
In the SafeZone Preferences dialog box, click Custom SafeZones. By default, Scan files and folders on the Desktop is selected.
Select the folder or volume that you want to be a SafeZone. The location appears in the list.
Click Save. Auto-Protect will now scan the new SafeZones.
To remove a Custom SafeZone
In the SafeZone Preferences dialog box, click Custom SafeZones.
Select the SafeZone to be removed. If a Custom SafeZone volume is unavailable, it is listed as Not found.
Click Remove. Click Save.
About Scan Preferences
In Mac OS 8.1-9.x, the Scan options apply to all scans performed by the Norton AntiVirus program and by Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect. This includes scans you initiate, scheduled scans, automatic floppy disk scans, and scans that Norton AntiVirus initiates automatically (when you launch a program, for example).
In Norton AntiVirus for Mac OS X v10.1, you can set preferences for scans performed by Auto-Protect. When removable media are mounted they are added to the volumes protected as part of a Universal SafeZone, and thus those files (formatted for HFS and HFS extended) are scanned and safe.
