Scanning External Hdd's

Recommended Posts

Hi there, just wanna ask how would i be able to do a full scan on my external hdds?


explored the custom scan settings but was only given two options either do a scan on drive "C" or drive "D" no option for drive "H"


if i use the "Threat Scan" will it be able to scan every drives on my pc? including the externals?



Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome: :)
Reboot the computer to see if the "H" drive appears.

If that suggestion does not resolve your issue:

For the record, though, the (daily) Threat scan is the default and recommended scan type for most users under most conditions.  It looks in all the places live malware is likely to hide.
A full system scan of all mounted drives/volumes will be very slow and is a task better suited to your anti-virus.
Frequent use of such full system scans could potentially cause excessive wear on your hard drive.


Please let us know how it goes,
