Disinfection of archives:
« on: July 14, 2003, 06:57:53 PM »
When a virus inside an archive is detected, how about adding an additional option 'delete archive', since there really is no simple way to repair these?

The 'delete the file' doesn't work for you, if the file is inside an archive??

We don't support 'delete the file' option only for solid-RAR archive because all files would have to be extracted and then compressed again - and RAR author releases unpack source code only.
