Re: problem in automatic scanning of pen drive

From version 15.1 Mcafee does not auto scan usb drives when connected. It now is an on access scanner where it scans files when they are accessed or manually when you request a file or drive to be scanned.

Re: problem in automatic scanning of pen drive

Hi

Please check if the Pen drive is connected as an external device or Internal drive by clicking "This PC". If it is the Internal drive then McAfee wouldn't consider it as a Flash drive and doesn't show a prompt to scan.
