PROBLEM When adding/removing a hard disk.

This program version presents problem every time I add and I remove a hard disk. Always a message appears asking for execute diagnosis and to restart the computer. ???

Hi livioadelson, welcome to the forums.

This problem is being cause by CFP 3’s use of the HarddiskVolume device numbers. Every time you add (or remove) a HDD you can alter the HarddiskVolume numbers. This can temporarily invalidate (break) CFPs installation & stored HDD locations within CFP (for rules, etc.). But, CFP’s Diagnostic component can & does fix these HDD links (as the message says). How many times have you encountered this problem? Do you often add/remove HDDs?

Yes, I add and I remove hard disks constantly. Work with computers maintenance and do customers data backup in my machine. Thanks by the attention and answer, I comprehend perfectly the cause but, if can do something for even to improve what it is already too good, thank. By the way, sorry by the eventual mistakes in my message, am using a program to translate.

This happens to me all the time and a side effect is duplicate rules need to be created everytime.

I’ve got this problem too. Can’t comodo be configured simply to ignore hardrives beyond a certain volume to fix the problem. Say windows is on C:\ can’t you set comodo to ignore any drive beyond that?

I had the same problem. Because I change 2nd HDD-s in my computer often I had to uninstall Comodo v3.0 (I wont double restart XP because of this…). I found Comodo v2.4 works well even if I change HDD-s but I don’t understand why v3.0 is worse. Now I use v2.4 and I hope with the next subversion this problem will be fixed.

I too am experiencing this problem.

Working from a HP dv9023us laptop running Windows XP Media Center Edition SP2, I have several Seagate external hard drives of the eSata/Firewire/USB varieties .

I’ve reinstall CFP v3.x several times thinking that the initial installation was corrupted. Using any external hard drives – either attached during or post-installation - necessitates having to conduct an additional restart upon shutdown and re-booting.
