Hello @th71th, Welcome.

Please open the main window and select ‘Scan’.
Scroll down and you will find ‘Removable drives Scan’.

Hi @th71th,

is it a hard drive or a USB stick?

With HDs, depending on the computer and the OS, it can happen that it is mounted as 'local HD'. Then KIS does not realize that it is actually a removable disk.

Please check this in the Windows Explorer.

Hello @Schulte & @th71th

Also, in (our) v21.3, there is no such option:

 

 

& KIS, What’s new, states: “It is now possible to hide removable drive scan window.”

We raised this with HQ in June 2021, they said:

qte

"the removable drive scan window, offering an option to scan or not, (which has been complained about, by customers many times), will no longer show.”

end qte

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Hello @Flood and Flood's wife,


yes, you are right.
The popup is missing in the latest version.

You can only set whether to scan always or never.
