  • Question

  • I don't know if I am in the right forum for a question about Microsoft Essentials for WinXP (sp3).

    I wanted to know if MSE, when it does a full scan, will scan C: drive AND D: drive?

    I know it will scan C: drive, but will it also scan the D: drive?

    Please advise and thank you.

    If D: drive is partition on local drive it will be scanned, if D: drive is optical drive then you must select custom scan or select drive in My Conputer using right click menu.

  • Hi Alice,

    MSE by default (Quick Scan) will only scan the operating drive (C:)

    To scan all storage attached, choose full scan (You may schedule a full scan also)
