How to find quarantined BUP files for MOVE MP 4.6 clients?


We wish to recover BUP files of quarantined detections made by MOVE MP 4.6 for our investigation.
We know there is a client task to restore the files, but we need a manual method to get the quarantined BUP file.
Will it be found at the VSE Quarantine Folder (C:\Quarantine by default) on the
SVM? or somewhere on the MOVE client?

Re: How to find quarantined BUP files for MOVE MP 4.6 clients?

Quarantined files should be stored on the client, encrypted, with a .vir extension.. Default location  is C:\Quarantine\

  • mvadm.exe q list lists the currently quarantined files.
  • mvadm.exe q restore <detected as> restores all files of the detection type specified in the "detected as" parameter. Ensure that either the protection is disabled, or the file is excluded from scanning, so that the restored file is not detected again.
