I pulled my hard disk from one computer and connected it to another via USB cable so it will be an external drive that I can scan.

This will allow scanning of all files as the OS isn’t being booted up on the external drive.

I noticed ALOT of files are skipped on the scan.:drooling_face:

The ‘event’ recorded was mostly ‘Password Protected’ or ‘Access Denied’ for the file.


How do I get the ‘Password Protected’ files scanned ?

How do I get the ‘Access Denied’ files scanned ?

Some files in Windows are locked and also password protected (for example rar or zip archive are skipped) becasue kaspersky don´t know password.
