Automatically clear quarantine

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have Eset (currently v9, not upgraded to v10 because of a few usability issues) automatically purge quarantine files after 'X' number of days?  I just checked one of my machines, and it had nearly 10GB of quarantine files (I use that one to scan for friends and family, when they get infections).  I can do it manually, but it would be nice if it had a setting to happen automatically.

No, this is not possible. Normally the content of quarantine should not exceed dozens of MB. How many files do you have in quarantine? Are they mainly very large files? What threat was found in them?

The files went back all the way to 2015, so it had been accumulating for some time.  I don't recall the specifics, as I already purged anything older than a month.
