PrevX is trying to scan my optical drives. But they are empty, still it is listing files?
If it sees that a file has loaded from an optical drive previously, it will try to scan it in the future just to be sure that anything remains detected. Windows manages optical drives well and Prevx isn't trying to spin up the drives so you shouldn't have a problem
No it is not causing any problems. I just thought it was strange and might indicate some kind of problem. So it isn't really scanning that file but trying to scan it? Is this how I should interpret?
edit: it is having some negative side effect: scanning now takes a lot longer.
It is just checking to see if the file exists or is currently accessible. If your scans are taking longer, you may wish to consider uninstalling and reinstalling, or send a scan log to email@example.com by clicking Tools - Save Scan Results and we will see what we can do to optimize your scan speed
Well, the same thing also happens with empty floppy drives (believe or not there are still computers around using them..) And those empty drives make loud noises while Prevx is trying to scan non-existent files on them. Please fix this, uninstall/reinstall is not a solution.
