Hello and welcome to the community! 

Thanks for bringing this to our attention! Let me help you on this matter. 

To keep Folder Shield from protecting your External Drives through your USB port, you can check the steps below. 
Step 1: Open the main console of your Trend Micro Security software. Do either of the following:
  • Double-click the Trend Micro  icon on your desktop.
  • Double-click the Trend Micro  icon on your system tray (near the clock).
Step 2: Click Data.

Step 3: Click Configure.

Step 4: Untick the checkbox for Protect all connected USB Drives. 

Step 5: Check if you will be able to use it normally. 

I hope this helps. 

Thank you and have a great day!
