I have a symantec quarantine folder that's 15.5GB. It's located here:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\(Server ip address)\Data

It's full of numbered folders containing .vbn files.

Can I delete all this? Also, how can I lower the size of this file? Or set a size limit? I can't find out how to lower the retention size of the quarantine folder. I can find the option to quarantine the list but not set sizes. can't find it in policies when using the endpoint protection manager. Version 12.1.671.4971. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
