F-Secure scans on HDD more as one archive parallel and so scan are slow

I have several backups from my website on a hard drive. These are tar archives with a lot of files.

As soon as I scan them (manual scan), several archives are checked in parallel and you can hear the hard disk very clearly because the read head keeps jumping.

I could see exactly with Sysinternals that 3 files are being opened in parallel again and again.

F-Secure should recognise that this is an HDD and only scan one file, as this slows down the scan massively.

Can someone pass this on to the developers?
