If a user attempts to replace a file on a network share or USB drive with a file that contains sensitive information, the Block pop-up dialog displays and the original file is deleted.

The original file is deleted only when the Block rule is used.


Users can move the file from the quarantine location displayed on the Block pop-up dialog back to its original location.

Users can also whitelist the application.
