The main purpose of the quarantine is to safely store infected files. You should quarantine files if they cannot be cleaned, if it is not safe or advisable to delete them, or if they are being falsely detected by ESET Cyber Security.

You can quarantine any file. This is advisable if a file behaves suspiciously but is not detected by the antivirus scanner. You can also submit quarantined files for analysis to the ESET Threat Lab.

You can view files stored in the quarantine folder in a table that displays the date and time of the quarantine, the path to the original location of the infected file, the size in bytes, the reason (for example, added by a user) and the number of threats (for example, if it is an archive containing multiple infiltrations). The quarantine folder with quarantined files () remains in the system even after removing ESET Cyber Security. Quarantined files are stored in a safe encrypted form and can be restored again after installing ESET Cyber Security.
