That depends (awful answer, I know :)).

If you already had that drive opened in explorer, the cache would
already have started monitoring it. And on shutdown, it would save that
information and reload it on startup again. So if you really want to
prevent the cache from monitoring a drive, you'd have to first set that
drive to the exclusion list, quit the settings dialog (or hit "Apply" to
save those new settings), then you'd have to kill the cache process so
it doesn't get a chance to write everything it knows to disk.
Then, it won't monitor that drive anymore.

Thanks! That lightens up my mood!
