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.


Not all detections found on client devices are moved to quarantine. Detections that are not quarantined include:

Detections that cannot be deleted

Detections that are suspicious based on their behavior, but are not identified as malware, for example, PUAs


You can Delete the quarantined file or Restore it to its previous location. You can use Restore and Exclude the quarantined file to prevent it from being reported by the ESET product again.

You can use various filters to filter the list of files in quarantine.

There are two ways to access Quarantine:

1. More > Quarantine.

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