Is there a way to export a list of quarantined files?
« on: October 23, 2021, 03:55:45 PM »
Is there a way to export a list of files that are in the quarantine? Basically, I would like to get a text version of what is displayed in the quarantine screen (threat name, infected file, original location, date found), so that I can sort and examine the files and locations.

I am using the free home edition

Thanks

As far as I'm aware there isn't a specific tool or list for this.

Of course you manually trawl through the report files, but that isn't going to be an easy task as there are multiple report files for the various shields/scans.

Given that you are talking about files in the Quarantine area, they (the files) wouldn't be in the original locations.
