    Hi,

    it seems that strict cleaning is not working as it should. Even with this option,
    archives containing malware are not deleted. Is there a way to configure it
    so that during a scan, all infected files (including archives) will be automatically
    deleted (and copy to quarantine)?

    Thanks

    Perhaps waiting for the final release is an option and then see what's fixed or not?

    If I'm not mistaken strict cleaning wouldn't delete a file. It just cleans when cleanning is possible. If you wish to delete the files you shouldn't use strict cleaning.

    Currently there is no difference between the standard and strict cleaning, this will change later when we make the strict cleaning more sophisticated. However, if an archive contains only infected files, the whole archive will be deleted with either cleaning level selected.
