scan with avast
« on: November 15, 2011, 07:24:25 PM »
Hello,
I am new user. I'm using a free version of avast.My HardDisk has two partition: C and D.
Avast always starts with the partition named C but never scans the partition D.
Why?
Thanks

What do you mean "starts" with the "C:" partition?

Go to the specific scan you are manually running (avast main GUI -> scan computer -> select the specific scan) and select to scan the relevant drive.

Hi,

 By default avast! will scan only your C: Drive. Since you need to scan your D: drive too,

You can go for Select folder to scan option in Scan Computer in avast! GUI and click on Start. There you can select the D: drive that you need to scan.

Hope we answered your doubt.

Have a wonderful day. Good Karma! :)

I have 2 partitions on my XP laptop also...C drive is the main drive where everything on your computer is stored for your computer Operating System..My D drive is basically 40 gigs of empty space...I have chosen to put a folder there in which I download all my music to, and Youtube videos etc. Also I store my passwords and important things there in case if I ever have to reformat and do a recovery my D drive will be left untouched, while my C drive will be erased and factory settings will be set there...
   However on Avast scans...Avast does start the scan with your C drive and depending on what you have on your D drive it will scan at the end...On default settings " All harddiscs" I have Videos from Youtube and Music so depending on Avast settings on "Scan" "Sensitivity"  the size of Music Videos..
My E drive is my DVD ram, and F and G are my USB which if inserted will also be scanned on an Avast Default "full scan" usually at the end of the scan...If U do a Boot Time Scan set it to all harddiscs..

Sorry for the lengthy letter...I had some free time to spare at work...TC
