What are LANDesk Antivirus backup objects and where are they located on the client.

Version 1

    Issue:

    LANDesk Antivirus shows objects in backup.

    What are backup objects and where are they stored on the client?

     

    Solution:

    When an infected file is detected, LANDesk Antivirus first makes a copy of the original file (backup file) then lets the engine clean the file. If it succeeds, LANDesk Antivirus leaves the backup file. If it fails to clean the file, LANDesk Antivirus will change the backup file to a quarantined file and deletes the original file. Backup files are located in the QUARANTINE directory located in the directory that opens when you run "VULSCAN.EXE av" from Start | Run on the client and they have a .BAK extension.
