Hi SpyBot experts!

I have been a (Paid up) devotee of PestPatrol fo quite a while.
Because of the nice things said, in this thread, about SpyBot I have
downloaded, updated and run it within the last hour. I am
impressed. It detected (alleged) nasty things that PestPatrol had

But, and here is the question needing SpyBot experience, please how
do I tell what the program is scanning? I may have missed it but I
saw no indication and I am left wondering whether it just scans the
C: drive. I have worked my way through the settings. Have I missed
an option to select which partitions will be scanned?
