Thank you for posting this query

I would like to inform you that DLP does not scan a USB drive, it either block the usb drive or it can Allow it. There is no option of scanning the USB drive

You can use Endpoint security to scan a usb drive, by right clicking the usb drive and selecting the option Scan for threats. We also have the On Access Scan which scans the file whenever the file is accessed.
