25 April 2024

ID 181298

You can restore a file from Backup to its original folder. If a file with the same name already exists at the specified path, the application will ask for confirmation to replace the file. The file that is being restored is copied keeping its original name.

To execute this command, Password protection must be enabled. The user must have the Restore from Backup permission.

Backup stores backup copies of files that were deleted or modified during disinfection. A backup copy is a file copy created before the file was disinfected or deleted. Backup copies of files are stored in a special format and do not pose a threat.

Backup copies of files are stored in the folder C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\KES.21.16\QB.

Users in the Administrators group are granted full permission to access this folder. Limited access rights to this folder are granted to the user whose account was used to install Kaspersky Endpoint Security.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security does not provide the capability to configure user access permissions to backup copies of files.
