It is broken into sections for easier reading. 2.1) Scanning for protections: ---- -----------------------Scanning for protections is a relatively easy task. The first step is to insert the CD/DVD you wish to scan into you CD/DVD drive. Upon loading A-Ray Scanner V2 you will see in the upper left corner 2 dropdown lists which will allow you to select the drive you have inserted the disc into. After selecting the correct drive from the list you must then choose which method of scanning you would like to use. When scanning CD/DVD discs you should choose from "Scan" or "Sector Scan". The protections that can be detected using these methods are displayed in sections 1.1 & 1.2 of this README. If no protections are detected then you should consider performing a "Directory Scan". This button is most useful after the software you wish to scan has been installed. After installing the software you can then use the "Directory Scan" option to locate and scan the softwares install directory. The protections that can be detected using this method are displayed in section 1.3 of this README.

The last way that you can use A-Ray Scanner V2 to scan for protections is just to drag & drop a file into the main log window. The file will then be scanned and any protections will be displayed. All protections detectable using this method are displayed in section 1.3 of this README. 2.2) Options window: ---- -------------The following options are available in this window. *Scan Files Bigger Than 20 MB This option will cause A-Ray Scanner V2 to scan files that are larger than 20mb.
