How do I restore previously removed files that are in Quarantine?

October 19th, 2015

If you want to restore previously removed files for whatever reason you can do this using Spybot’s “Quarantine“.

Quarantine can be either launched via the Start Center.

  • Open Spybot by right clicking on the Spybot icon and choosing the option to “Run as Administrator”.
  • Go to Quarantine.
  • Here, you can select/deselect files to purge (remove permanently from your PC) or restore.

They can also be found in SDTray’s program list.

  • Right click on the Spybot – Search & Destroy icon in your system tray beside the Windows clock and navigate to “Basic Tools” then “Quarantine”.
  • Once “Quarantine” has been started, feel free to select the product you want to restore and hit “Restore selected”.
