I’m curious. I’m trying out the (most recent) free version of Malwarebytes and haven’t been able to find the answers to my questions on their site. Does anyone know how to get it to scan a specific disk if you have more than one attached (internal drive, external drive). It seems to only scan the drive it has been installed on.

Also, what is it scanning. It ran very quickly on my external SSD, but scanned only about 28,000 files, while there area close to 950,000 files on the drive. I’m not sure why but there are very few options to configure here. Does it scan only certain files or directories?
Also, I’m running Mojave, 10.14.6.

It can only scan your internal drive.
