SDFiles is a small-sized and portable application designed as a lighter version of SpyBot - Search & Destroy to scan files for malware agents. It features essential, straightforward options for making this happen, and it's not equipped with tools for removing any infected or suspcious files.
There is no setup kit involved, since SDFiles is packed into just one executable file. You can save it anywhere on the disk or keep it stored on a removable storage unit to directly launch the program on any computer with as little effort as possible.
No new entries are added to the system registry in this regard, and no extra files are generated on the disk without permission. To perform a complete uninstall, it's only necessary to delete the .exe.
Concerning the interface, the software utility adopts a single window with a neatly structured layout, where you can add files for scanning by dropping them into the panel from Windows Explorer or another file navigator you're using. It's possible to add either one file or a selection of multiple items at the same time.
The scanning operation is performed automatically, so there's no need to click any button to trigger this action. Once it's over, you can check out the status of each file, in addition to its extension.
Two separate types of scanning are performed for all files: a regular one ("malware") and an advanced one ("heuristic"). Results are separated into these two groups. Safe files are indicated through a simple file icon, while suspicious ones or infections can be easily spotted via a red icon containing an x.
Scanning operations were swiftly conducted in our tests. Due to its compact size, it's no wonder that SDFiles remained light on system resources consumption. However, it's not armed with tools for removing files infected with malware, so you have to resort to SpyBot - Search & Destroy or another anti-malware application to take care of the job.
