How do I change the Quarantine directory that the Endpoint Agent uses when blocking files? Is there a way to change the time period that these files are kept in that directory?


You can update this setting in the Agent Configuration:

  1. Go to System -> Agents -> Agent Configuration
  2. Select the Agent configuration to update
  3. Go to  the "Settings" tab

You can set the 'File Recovery Area Location' under the Settings tab of the Agent Configuration.

The min setting to keep the files in this directory is 1 hour.

The max setting to keep the files in this directory is 999 hours which is 41.625000000033296 days.
