Is your bitcoin folder on a separate drive from your Windows installation by chance? IE: Is windows installed to C:\Windows but your bitcoin program is on E:\Bitcoin?

In fact, Bitcoin, Dash, and others are on my M: drive

The size of the blockchains will fill up a half terabyte C drive in no time. So my system drive never holds these.

ONLY bitcoin's directory get the outgoing/incoming block. Excluded as BOTH a file and a folder ... other cryptos are not blocked.

The client verifies transactions from around the globe constantly, a torrent style connection. These are the packets being blocked

I can send and receive transactions no problem. But the network depends on the clients running verifications.

I want to do my part.

We have recently identified an issue where programs on non-OS drives can't be excluded from Web Protection. The only solution at this time is to put the program on your OS drive. Perhaps the program will allow you to store the data on a separate drive from the application itself?

I can only tell it to store the incoming data on a specific drive.

it creates an /app data/ folder if not on the Cdrive, usually /roaming/app data/.

I just checked.

Copied the exe to a folder on my desktop.

Ran it, and it opened and is referring to my M drive for the blockchain data.
