MBAM scans hidden partitions?

Recommended Posts


I've seen this question raised in another forum, and wonder how MBAM scans the following:

- the hidden factory recovery partition (in the case of laptops)

- the System reserved (100MB partition)

- the MBR (first 512 bytes on HDD)

since you can only select scans by selecting a drive letter.

Can anyone comment on this?

Thanks AdvancedSetup. Apologies, I wasn't trying to get details of the scanner workings, I just after some assurance that the hidden factory recovery partition on my wife's laptop is also scanned in the venet that I ever have to perform a restore to factory default settings.
