Here is a link to the original issue: https://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?/topic/386056-avpexe-causes-minutes-of-external-hdd-crunching-at-each-connection/
Essentially the issue is that when I dock my laptop to my docking station (which has a 1TB external drive attached via USB), the drive scans for a lengthy period of time. It's quite noisy and distracting and I would like to try and prevent it but so far I have not been solve it.
Things I have tried:
- Scan -> External Device Scan - there are no external devices visible
- Settings -> Additional -> Threats and Exclusions -> Manage Exclusions. I have Selected to exclude the "D:\" folder which is the path the external is available on. I've tried just selecting "Scan" and also selecting everything, and rebooting. None of these have changed the behavious
- Settings -> Performance - uncheck rootkits scan
I'm at a loss as to how to prevent this behaviour. Has anyone got any other suggestions please?
