What does “Purge Old” do?

October 19th, 2015

“Purge Old” allows you to completely remove items from your system.

When you click on “Purge Old” a window will open allowing you to select a date.

The date you select determines which files will be deleted. Any files that were moved to the quarantine before this date will be removed permanently from your PC.

To purge the files in Spybot’s quarantine:

  • Open Spybot “Start Center” by right clicking on the icon  and choosing  “Run as administrator”.
  • Go to “Quarantine”.
  • Click on “Purge Old”, and enter the desired date.
