Talking with Support yesterday, it was discovered that Malwarebytes does NOT support the Windows 10 redirection of Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Pictures, Videos or 3D Objects to another partition.
For those of us that use a SSD for the OS or routinely perform a fresh install to cleanup and optimize Windows 10 it is a MAJOR advantage to not have EVERYTHING on the same physical drive as the OS.
Windows 10 FULLY supports redirection. This is one of several methods to redirecting them:
1. Open File Explorer
2. In the Quick Access area or you can go under This PC if you , right click for example Desktop and choose Properties
3. Choose the Location Tab
4. Enter the new path (complete all the way to the drive letter)
5. Click Apply
6. Choose Yes to Move all items to the new location.
Now your SSD drive has much more free space for installed applications etc.
Here is the problem:
When you download to any of these new locations Malwarebytes 3 does not do any checks
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, the Threat Scan "Our most comprehensive scan" does not scan these areas.
Therefore I say that there is a HOLE in the security.
Here's hoping for a quick resolution!
