    Do it manually. If you have windows PC,
    in settings you can pick manual checking and the drives.

    Here is an instruction with more information.

    If by "extend the virus scan" you mean "perfom scan for other drives" -- most likely there next meanings:


    --> So called "Virus scan" is a brief-check about places/destinations - where most likely can be troubles; Like active malware or so;


    --> For detect "not active" malware (or kind of this) under system; Or as scanning for full drives:


    --  DESIGNED steps: there possible to launch "Full Scan";


    ^ under this help you have to use steps about "Full computer scan" (Main UI F-Secure SAFE -> 'Tools' tab -> Scanning options -> Full Scan);


    -- OR you able to "choose" drives under Explorer (like target files) -> rightclick and choose context-manual scan;


    -- ALSO there is "real-time scanning" - which scan all (?) drives at access or activities;


    -- ALSO possible to configure scheduled scan;


    -- MAYBE if you want certain "virus scan" (or certain options) - maybe you able to use commandline scanner as "task under system" with certain configuration; But this is not common steps;


    Sorry for my reply.
