One way to catch malware threats on your computer is by inserting an infected USB stick and start copying files on your PC. USB Drive AntiVirus will help you scan the USB drive before transferring files. It will easily detect and get rid of all viruses in order to ensure a safe copying process.
The nice thing about this application is that it can work simultaneously with other anti-virus tools, this way, increasing the security level of your PC.
At first launch, the program will automatically scan your drives for virus infections (this might take a while). You can skip this step though and adjust the application's settings and choose the proper scan filters instead. After that, you can proceed with the USB stick or hard drive scan.
I didn't have to wait long for the USB drive scan to complete, but when it came to check my hard drive for viruses, well that was a different story. But this aspect isn't so relevant considering this application was designed for USB drives protection.
USB Drive AntiVirus will bring you additional configurations that will boost the security status, like USB lock (disable writing data or usage on USB drives) or immunize disk (prevent most viruses infections).
My guess is that, if you work in an environment where you need to share USB stick with your co-workers, this tool is quite necessary.
