What is the File Scan?

The File Scan is an on demand tool that allows you to scan single files and folders on your PC.

The File Scan uses the same detection signatures to search for malware, including viruses in licensed editions, as the System Scan does. This feature is available in all editions of Spybot 2.

You can Open the File Scan from the Start Center or under the Basic Tools section in the System Tray.

You can also start the File Scan by opening SDFiles.exe in the Spybot directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot – Search & Destroy 2

Or on a 32-bit/x86 PC:
C:\Program Files\Spybot – Search & Destroy 2
