Restoring files from Backup

If malicious code is detected in a file, Kaspersky Endpoint Security blocks the file, assigns the Infected status to it, 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.

Files with the Will be deleted on computer restart status cannot be restored. Restart the computer, and the file status will change to Disinfected or Deleted. You can also 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).

The set of backup copies of files is presented as a table. For a backup copy of a file, the path to the original folder of the file is displayed. The path to the original folder of the file may contain personal data.

If several files with identical names and different content located in the same folder are moved to Backup, only the file that was last placed in Backup can be restored.

To restore files from Backup:

  1. In the main application window, in the Monitoring section, click the Backup tile.
  2. This opens the list of files in Backup; in that list, select the files that you want to restore and click Restore.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security restores files from the selected backup copies to their original folders.
