When you have a full system scan, it scans the whole computer. By default, it scans once a month. I changed mine to once a week.

Settings>Antivirus>Scans and Risks>Computer Scans>Full System Scans> Configure on the right side. Click on Configure and then you can set up your scan.


Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Norton Core Security Plus Core Firmware 282 I E 11 Chrome latest version.

Hi GeoChin,

You can also set up a Custom Scan to scan only that drive in lieu of scanning the entire system.

Select the Security Square on the dashboard (main page of Norton product) > Scans > Custom Scan > Go > Create Scan > Select Scan Items (+Add Drives) > Set Schedule > Scan Options > Save.
