Disable New Device detected?

edited July 2017 in Protection

Hi,  I am having a bit of a nightmare.  I have a lot of old drives that i am trying to sort through and clean.  trouble is i am constant bombarded with new device detected,  even for USB drives that are always connected.


please,  how can i disable this feature,  thanks


  • its ok i found what i was looking for on another post 


    Please set your "Scan USB devices" to Disabled and let me know if the issue still persists.

    You can find the option in Bitdefender > Protection > View Modules > Antivirus > Drives and devices

    Thanks for your information default_happy.png it is really helpful, But I hope in the future that Bitdefender has an automatic way to remember the devices that has been inserted to your computer because the problem is how if someone has got the same issue as yours and the thing is that they forgot to enable that specific feature.
