  •      defaults write PromptForZeroSizedVolumes -bool YES; killall cfprefsd
  • - Expert preference setting to disable prompts for /home and /net - only needed if you enable the expert pref for zero-sized volumes above.
  •      defaults write IgnoreSystemVolumes -bool YES; killall cfprefsd
  • - Expert preference setting to change the threshold at which Sentry will prompt to scan new disks. Default value is 100 MB.
