Kaspersky Anti-Virus stores suspicious objects in the quarantine folder in an encrypted form to ward the protected server against its possible harmful effects.

Any quarantined object can be restored which may be useful in the following cases:

  • If an object status has changed to False positive or Disinfected after rescanning the quarantine with updated antivirus databases;
  • if you consider an object to be harmless for the server and want to use it. You can also exclude such an object from scan by the Real-time file protection and On-demand-scan tasks – then Kaspersky Anti-Virus will not quarantine that object at subsequent scans. It is done via the options Exclude objects (by name) or Exclude threats in these tasks or by adding it into Trusted zone.

When restoring an object, you can select its new location: its source folder (by default), a special folder for restored objects on the protected server, or a custom folder on the host with installed Kaspersky Anti-Virus console.

A folder for restored objects is a special folder located on the protected server. You can scan it using special security settings. Its path is defined in quarantine settings.
Restoring quarantined objects may result in an infection. If a quarantined object was a part of a compound object (archive, e.g.) initially, Kaspersky Anti-Virus will not restore it inside that compound object, but will save it separately in the selected folder instead.
You can restore an object saving its copy in the quarantine so it could be rescanned after updating antivirus databases.

How to restore a quarantined object:

  1. Open the console node Quarantine.
  2. Right-click an object you want to restore and invoke the command Restore.



  3. Select a folder to restore it to. You can see the object name in the field Object (it displays the name of the first one, if you have selected several objects). Available options:

    • Restore to the source folder to restore the object to its original location.
    • Restore to the server folder for restoration by default to restore it in a special folder located on the protected server;
    • Restore to folder on your local computer or on the network resource to restore it in a custom folder on the host with installed Kaspersky Anti-Virus console.

  4. If you want to save a copy of the object in quarantine for further rescans, uncheck the box Delete objects from storage after they are restored.
  5. To apply the selected restoration settings to all selected objects, check the box Apply to all selected objects.
  6. Click OK.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition will then proceed with restoring selected object(s).
