Sometimes it is not possible to save files integrity during the disinfection process. If a disinfected file contained important information that is partly or completely inaccessible following disinfection, you can attempt to restore the original file from its backup copy.

A backup copy is a copy of a dangerous object, and is created in Quarantine when an object is disinfected or deleted by Kaspersky Internet Security.

Quarantine is a special storage area that contains backup copies of files that have been deleted or modified during disinfection. The main function of Quarantine is to enable the user to restore an original file at any time. Files in Quarantine are stored in a special format and are not dangerous.
