Adding Network-Attached Storage (NAS) to scan exclusion list?
I have a WD My Cloud.Windows 7 64bit.Up to date Norton Security.
I went to Settings, Antivirus, Scans and Risks tab, Items to exclude from scans, Configure, Add folders, browse buttons, selected the folder in my WD My Cloud NAS.When I clicked OK it returned an error "You have entered an invalid path".I also tried replacing the NAS hostname with it's IP (\\192.168.1.2\victor) but had the same result.I'll attach 2 images to visually describe the problem.
The NAS will be attached to my network at all times, and my PC will be attached to it constantly and I'll be transferring lots of files to and from it.I have some gaming related and other 3rd party small programs written by amateurs that are not currently in Norton's "known good" database so Norton constantly removes things like those by thinking they are malicious.Norton Security is configured to scan attached storages.I want to keep it that way so it will scan USB flash drives and USB hard drives.Can I add the NAS to exclusion list somehow ?
If not, please consider this as a feature request.Thank you !
EDIT: This also happens when I add the NAS to exclusion list under "Items to exclude form Auto-Protect, SONAR and Download Intelligence Detection".
