Title: Avast Business-Virus Chest Location
Post by: Brian558 on January 09, 2019, 07:09:32 PM
I need to remotely access the virus chest of a user via command line; \\computer-name\c$\........

Does anyone know where the chest is located on the hard drive (path)?
Does anyone know what happens to a file that is automatically moved to the chest? file extension?

I have many files that I changed the extension to .bdm that avast alerted on and moved to the chest. Now, I cannot locate these files by their original names when looking from a DOS prompt.

Any help, tips, tricks, etc.... are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

I understand the purpose of the admin console.

I still want to know where the virus chest resides on the local hard drive.

Thank you,

Dont know, and to my knowledge you can not restore files from there if that is what you want to do?

c:\programdata\avast software\avast\chest
The index.xml file describes the contents of that folder; 00000001, 00000002, etc...
