How Can I Get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to Scan an External Drive

I have the latest free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed. I need to scan an infected hard drive that I have put into an enclosure and is showing up as the E: drive on my computer.

Am I totally blind, or is there not an option to choose which drive I want to have scanned????

Only thing the program lets me do is scan the C: drive.

Apparently Malwarebytes is not designed to scan external drives.

Actually just figured it out.

Was able to right-click on the E: drive inside of Windows Explorer and the context menu had an option to run a Malwarebytes scan!

Also if you select Full scan, there should be an option to select whatever drives you want :)
