How to stop KeePass from scanning all drives

    I just started using KeePass last month and I really like it. However, I am seeing an annoying problem. KeePass seems to regularly scan all of my system drives, including shares. I am using KeePass portable on my E: drive. My database is also on my E: drive.

    However, KeePass is scanning other drives as well - mostly shared drives that I also have active. I can see this with filemon. KeePass is scanning the root folder on all of these drives as well as many folders on my E: drive besides where the application and my data file is located.

    This slows down KeePass, as some of these drives turn off after idle.
    Why is this and how do I stop it?
    I am running KeePass 2.22 on Windows XP.

    Thanks much!

    Options / Advanced
    Clear "Automatically search key files also on removable media"

    I cleared several of the media flags and KeePass no longer accesses shared drives. I missed those options when I looked earlier.

    Thanks much!!
