Upload Quarantined File

The Upload Quarantined File task is used to manage files quarantined on clients. You can upload quarantined file from quarantine to a specific location for advanced investigation.

To create the task, click Tasks > New > add_new_defaultClient Task or click the desired client device in Computers and select New Task.


In the Basic section, enter basic information about the task, such as a Name and Description (optional). Click Select tags to assign tags.
In the Task drop-down menu, select the task type you want to create and configure. If you have selected a specific task type before creating a new task, Task is pre-selected based on your previous choice. Task (see the list of all Tasks) defines the settings and the behavior for the task.


Quarantined object - Select a specific object from the quarantine.

Object password - Enter a password to encrypt the object for security reasons. Please note that password will be displayed in the corresponding report.

Upload Path - Enter a path to a location where you want to upload the object.

Upload Username/Password - In case the location requires authentication (network share, etc.), enter the credentials to access this path. If the user is in a domain, use the format DOMAIN\username.


Review the summary of configured settings and click Finish. The Client Task is now created and a pop-up window will open. We recommend that you click Create Trigger to specify when this Client Task should be executed and on what Targets. If you click Close, you can create a Trigger later: click the Client Task instance and select Run on from the drop-down menu.


In Tasks you can see the progress indicator bar, status icon, and details for each created task.
