RESTORE. Restoring files from Quarantine

You can restore a file from Quarantine to its original folder. Quarantine is a special local storage on the computer. The user can quarantine files that the user considers dangerous for the computer. Quarantined files are stored in an encrypted state and do not threaten the security of the device. Kaspersky Endpoint Security uses Quarantine only when working with Detection and Response solutions: EDR Optimum, EDR Expert, KATA (EDR), Kaspersky Sandbox. In other cases Kaspersky Endpoint Security places the relevant file in Backup. For details on managing Quarantine as part of solutions, please refer to the Kaspersky Sandbox Help, Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Optimum Help, and Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response Expert Help, Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform Help.
