    Is it possible to make Smart Security scan USB devices such as ubs sticks or portable drives when they are first plugged in, or every time into a desktop or main computer.

    Scenario, do alot of work at school computers that always have many different threats on them. So when I bring home my exteranl hard drive it woul dbe good to find it scan automatically, each time.

    Thanks for your time.

    Yes that's possible.
    If you open the computerscan section you'll find your drivers

    Yes, a manual scan is possible, but currently ESS will not check a removable drive automatically when you plug it into your pc.
