ESET Quarantine


Recommended Posts

Noticed a large amount of quarantine files on ESET protect on prem dating back a few years.

is there a policy we can setup to delete any quarantine files that are older than 3months?

also curious if the quarantined files are stored on the local device, would the file not delete if the device does not communicate? its a concern because some of the devices do not exist now

Normally there should not be many files in quarantine. Currently only manual deletion from each user's quarantine folder is possible. ie. "C:\Users\%user%\AppData\Local\ESET\ESET Security\Quarantine" and "C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\ESET\ESET Security\Quarantine".

Adding to the OP's observation, our onprem Protect has more than 10000 files in quarantine, dating back to 2019.

It would be nice having a policy/configuration setting to clean the oldest.

How many files do you have in quarantine on particular endpoints? Is it hundreds or thousands of files?

Hard to isolate which endpoint hosts the most files in quarantine. Taking a random sample, I see less than 10 files in it.
