Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: That's right. The first time you start it it starts to scan all your drives and you just can't stop it. If that's done go to options where you can disable that and tell the program which drives to scan. The program did a good job for me c'se an extern HD crashed completely. However since now the program did not scan on start; I could at least see by loading the database which files I lost on that HD. The database of the program was saved to my C. So you can save each database after a scan.
