Solved Virus on Hard drive Tags: Hard Drives Virus Storage Last response: December 16, 2010 1:58 PM in Storage Share jltcool94 December 16, 2010 2:54:37 AM I am not sure if this is the right board for my question but i will ask anyways. Is there a way to check if a hard drive has a virus on it before I connect it to my computer since I don't want to wreck it.

It will have no way to run unless you tell it to. Just install it as a secondary drive and run a full virus scan on it. jltcool94 December 16, 2010 1:58:13 PM I never knew that, thanks!
