You do realize all AV's do this, most just don't even tell you it's going to be individually checked for you, like avast! does. They all submit unknown files to their servers for future analysis and enhancement of protection.

ComodoAV do not automatically send the file.

and 'The safety of an application is verified from the trusted cloud service' is not same as send file in cloud.. It can just check hash if unknown or not and sure or not.

Except Comodo does send files to their servers. And their service is so slow they don't manage to process them for months.

Comodo doesn't tell you that it sends them. Avast lets you know it's happening.
You tell me who's the thief ???

ComodoAV do not automatically send the file, files is added on list,  and I can choose to block it, allow it, or send it for analysis.

You can disable CyberCapture in the settings, if you don't need/want it.

Well, that's up to you. But HD space shouldn't be an issue nowadays.

I think that you may have inadvertently found a bug as an installation over 1GB I would say is not the norm.

I have just checked my win10 system and it is 1.3GB and I believe it is the DEFs folder and avast housekeeping (not clearing old defs sub-folders) that is the issue.  In the defs sub-folder I have 7 versions of defs (130MB ish) and a lot of much smaller streaming updates.  Ordinarily there should the current virus defs folder and the last one - not 7 in my case - so it looks very like that the avast housekeeping is failing to remove old defs sub-folders.

EDIT: Typo

This isn't the beta on my win10 laptop but the latest regular release.  I'm pretty much staying away from the betas now, I can do without the hassle.

If you look at my image again, the outdated ones are from November, so house cleaning has missed them, I was wondering if the same had happened to baudav. 

I had thought to disable the self-defence module and remove these, but keep getting a file in use error for several files, even though these are old def sub-folders and with the shield control disabled.  Looks like this will require action in safe mode or a reinstall.

Hi Dave, might be time for a clean reinstall...
My installation is much smaller, while running all the additional Premier stuff.
