Re: why selected folders?

""why selected folders?

And not entire drives?""

Because then you would have to white list a much larger range of binaries which would defeat the whole objective of keeping applications allowed to write to the controlled areas of the disk to a minimum?!

Not to mention that there shouldn't be any data that you care about outside of the default locations.
