I am a new technician with a job in repair and malware removal. I really like the tools I find here at Bleeping Computer and use them daily. I want to sign up for the training, so this is a post to get me started. One of my initial questions is, how do I get ComboFix to scan an external drive. I often find that I have to remove a drive from the computer and scan it down using one of my desktops. When all else fails and I need complete removal, I try combofix. But I have to replace the drive and run the tool in the original computer. That can be tricky when all I'm trying to do is recover files that the customer needs and the original OS is inoperable. Combo Fix and Unhide can make this possible. If anyone has other ideas for data recovery from dead or badly infected computers, I am all ears.
