    I would like to do a thorough malware/virus scan on my external hdd. Is there any good freeware that will get the job done?
    I notice a lot of free malware scan's dont seem to pick up on everything..

    Thanks.

    Hi solidwax,

    Depending on the antivirus software and/or antispyware software that is already installed on your PC, you have scanning options for other available volumes on the PC.

    It usually just requires you to right click each volume individually and pick the scanning option from the scanning software menu.
