How can I check flash drive

  1. How can I check a flash drive for virus, malware, etc. before I open it? On my old laptop several years ago I had some type of program that had an icon on my desktop and when I clicked on it it would check the flash drive before I opened it. I googled it but only found several sites from several years ago and no way to know if they are safe.
    Thanks.

    It doesn't have to be just a flash drive. You can also disinfect any other movable drives in the same way. Be sure they are connected to the computer when you run the program.
