MS Exchange/McAfee: Deleting the entire 'quarantine' directory
Posted on 2006-06-25
We have an Exchange 2003 server with McAfee Virus Scanning enabled. The server ran out of disk space late last night. Upon noticing this, (and without giving it much thought) I went in deleted the entire C:\Quarantine directory. There were over 10 GB worth of files in there...I permanently deleted the folder and then created a new one with the same name. Now, after thinking it through, I'm worried that I may have deleted something important. Could I have made a big mistake? Please advise. Thanks!
