    Question Is there a ‘select drive to scan’ option menu in SBv1.6 ?

    Spybot’s ‘Advanced’ Search & Destroy menu and ‘Check for problems’ button, do not make it at all clear, exactly what hardware is being scanned ???

    In fact, it’s as clear as MUD !

    Upon starting a scan, I can only assume C drive is scanned… but I am left totally unclear about any D drive (internal) scanning or the other 5 removable 1Tera tertiary drives ?

    Can I select individual drives to be scanned ?

    I need to prevent introducing malware from removable drives.

    All I can find in S&D menus is: – Settings / Directories / Download directory ???

    Am I supposed to ‘drag & drop’ and use this option to scan drives D E F G H & I, then scan 7 Terabytes all in one hit (it will take days to complete a scan!) ???

    Yet my ISP’s real-time anti-malware scanner (PC Guard) has a drive select menu.

    I am sure that I saw the option in S&D v1.5 ???

    Why can’t I find any ‘What’s New in Release vXX’ information notes’ anywhere ?

    Thank you for any help.

    i havent been able to scan my cd/dvd burners with cds in them with spybot other than with the right click scan and that took a long time and i didnt care to finish it.

    you can try to scan them with the right click scan.
