Hello,


When my antivirus detects a virus is it safe/smart to recover that file? An option in the isolated vault says to delete or leave it in the vault or recover.
Thanks for your assistance.

When a file is sent into quarantine, you must leave it there or you will infect your machine again.

Thanks for your help, I thought that was the case to leave it in quarantine vault. Thanks

However, you can empty the quarantine.
