Sometimes the integrity of infected files cannot be preserved during the disinfection process. If a disinfected file contained important information that is partly or completely inaccessible following disinfection, you can restore the original file from Backup.

A backup copy is a copy of a dangerous file that is created when the file is disinfected or deleted. It is stored in Backup.

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