Anyway to check which files have been scanned?

Hi I turned on my laptop earlier and got a message that Mcafee had scanned a file. I hadn’t downloaded anything so I’m not sure what it was. Mcafee did say that file was safe so I’m probably worry about nothing but I’d still like to be totally sure.

Re: Anyway to check which files have been scanned?

It can be extremely annoying to not be able to find your newly scanned documents on your hard-drive.

Whether you need to access the documents to verify if the scan was completed successfully, or you need to extract information from those files, the location of these documents can vary.

The storage location of your scanned files will depend on the software you use to scan your documents, and also the settings of your software. azarchatrandom
