All of my plugins are in a subfolder in my E drive (E>Plugins), however, whenever I start Cubase, it scans through my entire E drive (as well as all of my other drives), and not just that subfolder. This is an issue because whenever I install any sort of program on my computer, Cubase will take hours, sometimes days, scanning through the drives. I went into Plugin Options and removed the E:// drive as a plugin path - however, upon restarting Cubase, it simply scanned through the E drive once again and re-added it to the plugin path list. I’ve reinstalled Cubase in different locations but it’s the same every time.
Windows 10, Cubase 9.
