Select Drive Other Than Default "C" For Scan

Recommended Posts

I'm new, but have known about MWB for awhile. Finally bit and bought 3 licenses. Ran my first scan - it defaults to drive "C."  Checked out all options but don't see where I can change that default selection to another drive (partition "D" or an external HD or thumb drive?).  Any ideas out there?  John

Hi @knight_six - Welcome to the forums!

To scan drives other than your OS drive (typically C:) you'll want to use the Custom Scan option.

From the Scan tab, select Custom Scan. In the right hand pane of the Custom Scan configuration window you should see your additional drives.

Bob, I get bonehead of the day for that one - I should have simply clicked on all the tabs and it would have bit me on the face!  Thank you for being kind!!  John

Be aware that scan will be lengthy and will tie up your CPU during that time. Also very rare that any active malware will be on those drives. Remember MB is not an actual AV program and has some limits on what kind of files it detects.
