I have recently started to use Acronis to back up my system onto a 1.5Gb USB drive.
Every time I switch the drive on, Plusnet protect kicks in and hogs 90 - 95% cpu for 5 minutes or more. It fails to ask if I want the drive scanned and does not show anything in the Navigation Centre. I have set it to ask if removeable drives should be scanned, which works with pen drives, but not this Samsung one. There is no entry in Security History.
I want to stop this behaviour, without compromising protection against other threats.
Can anyone tell me how to tell Plusnet Protect to stop this?
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Uninstall it ,, works wonders
plenty of free alternatives , its not one of the better ones around
samsung 850evo 250gig , WD black 2 TB . Asus Phoebus sound ,
16 gig Avexir ram 2400 , water cooling Corsair H100i gtx ,
Corsair 750HXI Psu , Phanteks Enthoo pro case .

Yeah, that'd do it. I'm looking at Kaspersky at the moment but considering Windows 10 upgrade for my Dell Inspiron, which could 'brick' it. :¬((
Hoping to gain some time by amending p'net Protect settings, as alternative is to leave the external drive powered up all the time, which I'm trying to avoid.
If anybody else knows of a useful setting?
