After you replace a floppy disk, Microsoft Anti-Virus and Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows scan only the root directory of the second disk.


If you don't reselect the drive, Microsoft Anti-Virus does not have the opportunity to build a new directory list.


To correctly scan subsequent disks that have subdirectories, reselect the floppy disk drive before choosing Scan.
