This section shows all files quarantined on client devices. Files should be quarantined if they cannot be cleaned, if it is not safe or advisable to delete them, or if they are being falsely detected by an ESET product.


You can Delete the quarantined file or Restore it to its previous location. You can use Restore with Exclusion to prevent the file to be reported by the ESET product again.

There are two ways to access Quarantine:

1. Admin > Quarantine.

2. Computer details > Threats and quarantine > Quarantine tab.

If you click an item in the Quarantine section you will open Quarantine Management menu.
