Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows

Managing Backup

22 December 2022

ID 128132

If malicious code is detected in the file, Kaspersky Endpoint Security blocks the file, places a copy of it in Backup, and attempts to disinfect it. If file disinfection succeeds, the status of the backup copy of the file changes to Disinfected. The file becomes available in its original folder. If a file cannot be disinfected, Kaspersky Endpoint Security deletes it from its original folder. You can restore the file from its backup copy to its original folder.

Upon detecting malicious code in a file that is part of the Windows Store application, Kaspersky Endpoint Security immediately deletes the file without moving a copy of the file to Backup. You can restore the integrity of the Windows Store application by using the appropriate tools of the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system (see the Microsoft Windows 8 help files for details on restoring a Windows Store application).

Kaspersky Endpoint Security automatically deletes backup copies of files with any status from Backup after the storage term defined in the application settings has elapsed.

You can also manually delete any copy of a file from Backup.

The set of backup copies of files is presented as a table.

While managing Backup, you can perform the following actions with backup copies of files:

  • View the set of backup copies of files.
  • Restore files from backup copies to their original folders.
  • Delete backup copies of files from Backup.

You can also perform the following actions while managing data in the table:

  • Filter backup copies by columns, including by custom filter conditions.
  • Use the backup copy search function.
  • Sort backup copies.
  • Change the order and set of columns that are displayed in the table of backup copies.

You can copy selected Backup events to the clipboard. To select multiple Backup files, right-click to open the context menu of any file and choose Select all. To deselect files that you do not want to scan, click them while holding down the CTRL key.
