It appears I am confused about the difference between a 'deep' scan and a 'full' scan. A comment by JimM in another thread is shown below. The online help is ambiguous.
I was under the impression that if I chose 'deep' scan and pointed WRSA to a selected directory tree, it would grind through every file and archive and unpack/unroll archives of archives files to the end leaf. But it appears that I need to select 'full' scan in order to accomplish a thorough scan.

Quote by JimM in another thread:
That is because a deep scan only scans potential threats. There are some files on your computer that can be ruled out as threats and are therefore left out of the scan by default. You could run a full scan if you want to scan every last file, but that isn't advised since you are already protected by running the intelligent deep scan and via protection through the shields, which operate in real-time.
