Am I still able to do Deep scans with Malware bytes on Mac? I'm on version 4.4.11 and I have not really used it since the big upgrade.

 

The scan now takes about 10 minutes and I know for sure that my whole harddrive cannot be scanned correctly in this time. 

 

Love to hear back,

Thank you!

Some anti malware programs allow both options (quick and deep scans). It would be handy to have the deep scan available for scanning external drives, as I have old windows files on thumb drives that I'd like to check in case I connect them to a friend's windows computer. I wish Malwarebytes would just listen to requests instead of just telling people their program limitation is a feature. That's annoying. I was demoing this program and instead I'll demo Bitdefender as I know it has this feature.

I'm not sure why you assumed that nobody listened to your request. I simply explained that this is not currently present, and why, but rest assured that I heard what you said.

That said, what specific problem are you trying to solve with a "deep scan" feature? Keep in mind that different antivirus engines work differently and what could be called a "deep scan" in one engine may not be called the same thing - or may not even be necessary - in another engine. Rather than talking about requests for specific features, it's best to talk about the root problem.
