Even if you would manage to get 100 drives in one system, Avast still will be able to protect you.

Hello morlo

Welcome to the forum.


The standard shield of avast (the real time protection)  watches the files on both disks.

If  malwares were found on the second disk with an explicit scan, it maybe because the virus definition wasn't aware of these malwares when the infected files came in.
Or the settings of the standard shield are weaker than those of the explicit scan.

You're protected as the others say.
But, note that in some systems, the avast copy in the second hard disk could not run, I mean, if you 'start' to use he second drive as it was the first one, you may be probably need to unistall avast and install it again.  ;)
