    Hi,

    I'm used to run an in-depth scan on regular basis at 8 PM to run it overnight (it usually takes several hours due to large content) with the "Shutdown after scan" enabled.

    I'd like to know: when setting the scan options to "Strict cleaning", will all infected files or infected archives be moved to the quarantine if they are deleted (if the cleaning is not possible) ? In that case I could restore some false-positives and assign them exclusions.

    Thanks,
    XenonS

    Yes, files that are to be cleaned are always quarantined, no matter what cleaning mode is used.
