How the Crucial System Scanner works
The scanner simply looks in your BIOS for system information and then searches the Crucial website for compatible matches. We cannot access any of your personal data with the Crucial System Scanner, so using it will not compromise your system security. If you are concerned about downloading this file, you can scan it with your antivirus software before running it.
Downloading and running the Crucial System Scanner is easy
For Windows users:
- Click the "I agree to the terms and conditions" box in order to proceed with scan.
- Click "Scan my Computer" and choose "Save File" when prompted.
- Save the file to your desktop, or wherever you prefer.
- Navigate to the CrucialScan.exe file and open it. If you get a security warning, select "Run" to allow the download.

For Mac users:
- Click the "I agree to the terms and conditions" box.
- Click the "Scan my Computer" button.
- Navigate to the saved CrucialMacScanner file in your “Downloads” folder. (It may have a different name in different countries.)

- A security message will appear, warning: “’CrucialMacScanner.app” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.”
- Click “Open” to continue.
- The Crucial Mac Scanner will run and open with results in your default browser.
- Once you are done, simply delete the file since nothing was installed or created on your computer.
