Select the scan items

When you configure a custom scan, you must select the items that you want to include in the scan. You can include individual files, folders, or drives. You can include multiple drives, folders, and files to add to the scan. You can also exclude items from the scan.

When you select a drive, all the items in the drive including the files and folders are automatically added to the scan. When you select a folder, all of the files in folder are added to the scan.
