Not entirely sure what it is you are asking.
Avasts resident, on-access scanner monitors all and protects all connected drives.

Or are talking about running on-demand scans ?
If so you need to select the scan to do that, which would be the Full Virus Scan.

Hi,

currently Cleanup is focused only on a default system drive as there is usually the biggest potential of redundant files which could be cleaned.
So far we haven't even think about expanding its reach to other drives like D: or E: as there would be significantly less files we could potentially clean.

Could you please give us a few examples of what kind of files/folders are you interested in cleaning on such drivers?

Thank you.
