Virus scan D drive?


Hi
I have a recovery partition "D Drive" and when I do a virus scan it also checks that drive for viruses. How likely is it that one could get a virus there?
Do I have to scan that drive for viruses or is it safe to exclude it from a scan?
Thanks
Geri

Hello Gerri,

Is this one of those OEM insalled partitions used to get you back to "Factory" condition? If so, you can safely skip scanning of that partition.
