F Secure IS- Pre-install USB 3.0 HD question?


I have tried several IS AV's, and have been unhappy with them!


I am looking at FSIS?-

I do my Macrium Reflect system backups to a 1TB USB 3.0 External HD.

I have several hundred MB of backups, from 2 computers on this HD, and if FS has to scan it first this could take quite some time...! 


My other AV's had an option to skip pre-scanning USB..., but I see another topic where they couldn't skip pre-scanning a flash drive.

Would this pre-scan include my External HD, and is there some way to disable? Or...?

    I have three external USB drives, which contain a total of about 1.5Tb of data.  FS does not scan these drives on startup by default.
