    Sorry if this has been addresses before, haven't found anything too recent. Using MWB free 4.1.0 and give it the occasional scan but I don't find any setting allowing me to be sure all drives are scanned. So I have to presume the appl scans "the system". Unless I'm missing something.

    Guess if I want to scan a usb drive I'd just insert that and again hit the scan button. Finally, AIUI if the free ver finds any malware I can only quarantine or delete it using the premium version.

    Thanks for any feedback,

    Mac

    With a Custom Scan, you can choose what and where you want Malwarebytes for Windows to scan on your system. Depending on what locations you specify to be scanned, these scans can take a long time to complete. To avoid long wait times, we recommend you use Threat Scans unless there is a specific location on your device you want to scan.

    To customize a scan, click the Scanner card, then click Advanced scanners, then click Configure Scan. An example of the Configure Custom Scan page is shown below.

    No, if the free version detects malware it will quarantine it. The free version just doesn't have real-time protection and I believe you cannot schedule a scan. You can manually run a scan whenever needed though.
