    Default Is there any other command line functions for SDFiles.exe?

    Is there any other command line functions for SDFiles.exe?

    In the registry it shows this:

    "C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SDFiles.exe" "%1" /ask

    I found on my system it takes awhile to even load the scan dialog. I would like to scan drive D and some folders on Drive E, I don't need to do a memory check each time this is loaded. The scanning one file at a time takes quite a long time. Anyway to speed the scanning up? Note drive D & Drive E are not literally separate drives, I just partitioned my drive that way. I have windows xp sp3

    I have already ran spybot S&D on Drive C.

    Hello,

    The single files scan is meant for to scan single files and not complete drives.

    Spybot-S&D usually scans all internal harddisks automatically. But a general recommendation is that you store all incoming files (downloads) in a special folder, and that you set up this folder for a special installer scan. Please have a look at the "Directories" in the "Settings" when you run Spybot - Search & Destroy in "Advanced Mode". There you can add additional harddisks or folders.

    You can also use the command line parameter allhives.
    /allhives
    Scans all windows installations on your system, even inactive ones.
    Example: "C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SpybotSD.exe" /allhives
