PSI Beta 2 is not detecting drives correctly on my system (W7 x64 Ultimate).
I have 3 HDDs:-
HDD 0 (Nominal 500GB) has 2 primary partitions [K] & [H] and 2 logical Partitions [I] & [J]
HDD 1 (Nominal 1 TB) has 1 primary partition [D]
HDD 2 (Nominal 1 TB) has 3 primary partitions [E], [C] & [F] and 2 logical Partitions [B] & [G]

PSI detects B, C, D, E, H, I, J, & E (second detection)

E has an installation of W7 x86 Ultimate. Other drives are data stores.

I have rebooted after installing the beta.

Hello.
psi is a vulnerability/insecurity checker. It will scan all drives in use . If an Ignore rule has been created at some time, it will not show the results from scanning that particular drive.
If you have programs that are not showing up in any of the tabs....Insecure/Patched etc......you can suggest them for monitoring....see "Program Missing...Suggest it here" in the lower half of the status pages in psi.
Hope this helps...........regards,

Hi,

Please try running a full rescan. Is the PSI 2.0 Beta still showing the improper drive letters? If so, please send us a debug report at support@secunia.com (Do NOT post it here, as it can containt sensitive information specific to you and your system).

You can obtain a debug log by first closing the PSI, clicking Start, and then either open the run box and type "cmd" in it (for XP), or simply type "cmd" directly in the search bar (Vista & Win7).

From here, please type "cd "C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI"", preserving the quotes around the path. You may need to correct the path to your actual installation.
Now, type "psi --verbose --debug secunia.txt", and run a full scan with the PSI that launches.
The file we need should now be "C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI\secunia.txt".

Hi Emil.
Am I missing something here....is there anywhere else that the Drive letters would appear other than in the relevant file paths to the programs ? If a user has multiple drives being scanned, perhaps the results/tab pages are formatted differently to mine ? If you could please explain further, so I'll have for future reference......thanks.

PS....My error.....since downloaded the new version !!

I have the same problem, but with only one harddisk on a XP SP3. 3 partitions. c and d are shown in the settings, but x not. Between this letters i have some networkdrives. Could this be a problem?

Greetings, Markus

Hi,

The pattern we've noted so far with this issue is that only drives containing scanable files (DLL, ocx, exe, etc) are shown in the Detected Drives section.
A bug has been filed concerning this, and we will consider ways to either change behaviour, or clarify in the interface, though the change was intentional, to shorten the time it takes to run a scan. Nothing will be detected on a drive without any of ":Program Files".

Can anyone confirm the pattern I have noted, or are you missing scan-worthy drives as well?

hope this helps.

Yes, that appears to be the case for my system - I've only checked for .dll and .exe - but the 3 undetected drives do not have any of those two types.

I think that an explanation of why the drives are not detected would be sufficient - the quicker scan is to be commended!
Thanks, lmod

Hi Emil ,

Have you been bad :((( is weekend duty a punishment !?!? Not fair with all the effort you usually put in to the PSI .

My "D" 114 GB partition is using 108 MB and contains (many) .exe and .dll files . The majority are M$ update , install files and some C++ stuff .

Still only displaying C: for scanning .

Have a coffee break on me .

Anthony
