    What is the good or bad at setting the cleaning level in all areas of the suite from the default of 1, to 2.

    Level 1 - no cleaning
    Level 2 - archives containing malware only will be deleted
    Level 3 (strict cleaning) - archives containing malware as well as other files will be deleted

    I mean if there's an archive with malware and some clean files inside, the whole archive will be deleted.

    The way I read it:

    option 2: archive will be deleted when the only thing inside is malware (archives with both malware and clean files will be left alone).

    option 3: archive with both malware and clean files will be deleted.
