Full scans

Hey everyone,

A question, does the full scan scan ALL hard drives in my computer?  I ask this because I have a hard drive that is for games and one that windows and Norton etc is installed on, one is an SSD and the other is an HDD.  So does Norton scan both of these hard drives?

Re: Full scans

A Full System Scan will scan all drives in your system. In your case it will scan both your SSD and the HDD.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Full scans

Hello

If you are referring to a full antivirus scan, then it would be all drives. If you are referring to scan to see if your drives need to be optimized, then if follows the same rules as Windows uses. Norton would not optimize the SSD drive. So it would depend on the type of scan you are asking about.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: Full scans

I have a different defrag tool for degragging but I did say the full scan, not optimizing.
