Add exclusion of Drive in 2017

Hi i just had to reinstall my Bitdefender after my PC was stolen,  I got it back but the drive had been wiped.  so i am now having to reinstall everything.  This version of Bitdefender looks new, i have been away for about a month with no laptop.   my issue is i cannot see how to add an exclusion to my flash drive as I always prefer one drive not to be scanned unless i choose to scan it.


can anyone help?




  • Hello,


    You can add a exclusion similar the way 2016 worked.

    Bitdefender > Protection > View Modules > Anti-Virus > Exclusions
