During this step, you can specify which of the data used by the application you want to keep for further use during the next installation of the application (for example, when installing a newer version). If you do not specify any data, the application will be completely removed.

To save application data for future use,

select the check boxes next to the data types that you want to save:

  • Activation data - data that eliminates the need to activate the application you install in the future. It is activated automatically under the current license, as long as the license has not expired by the time of installation.
  • Backup and Quarantine files - files that are scanned by the application and placed in Backup or Quarantine.

    Backup and Quarantine files that are saved after removal of the application can be accessed only from the same version of the application that was used to save those files.

    If you plan to use Backup and Quarantine objects after application removal, you must restore those objects from their storages before removing the application. However, Kaspersky experts do not recommend restoring files from Backup and Quarantine because this may harm the computer.

  • Operational settings of the application - values of application settings that are selected during application configuration.
  • Local storage of encryption keys - data that provides direct access to files and devices that were encrypted before removal of the application. Encrypted files and drives can be accessed directly after the application is reinstalled with encryption functionality.

    This check box is selected by default.

To proceed with the Setup Wizard, click the Next button. To stop the Setup Wizard, click the Cancel button.
