How to run a removable drive scan

Removable drives that you connect to the computer may contain viruses or other applications that present a threat. Kaspersky Security Cloud scans removable drives to prevent your computer from becoming infected. You can configure a removable drive scan to be started manually or automatically when a removable drive is connected to the computer. Automatic scanning of removable drives is enabled by default.

To manually scan a removable drive:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click the Scan button.

    The Scan window opens.

  3. In the Scan window, select the Removable drives scan section.
  4. In the drop-down list, select the drive letter of the external device and click on the Run scan button.

Kaspersky Security Cloud will start scanning the connected device.
