Can't restore quarantine files
Posted 14 May 2012 - 05:47 PM
Recently I scanned an external Data Storage and it was infected with a worm, so all my folders were put in quarantine and now i can't restore them.
Please help, is the first time i use Ad-Aware

Which version of Ad-Aware do you have, 9.6, 10.0 or 10.1?

Please, open the log file, that Ad-Aware created during the scan, in Notepad. Copy its content and paste it into your answer here to let us see what Ad-Aware did. You find the log file here:
XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Logs\Scan_<date information>.log
Vista and 7 - C:\ProgramData\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Logs\Scan_<date information>.log
Please, open the Quarantine page in Ad-Aware and take a screen shot (Print Screen), that you can attach to your answer. It would also be nice if you could take a screen shot of the quarantine folder. You find the quarantine folder here:
XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Quarantine
Vista and 7 - C:\ProgramData\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Quarantine
Ask for details if you don't know who to do the above.
I have moved the topic from the forum "General support" to "Ad-Aware 9.x".

I found a solution to recover my data.
In the folder options of my external data storage, I clear the check box of the Hide protected operating system files option, and I get acces to my info.
Muchas gracias, un saludo desde México!!!

Good that you found a way to find your files, but then Ad-Aware had not moved them to quarantine. Do you need any help to investigate if there really was a worm and how it should be treated?

After backing my files, I selected the option that removed the objects in quarantine. Then I run a full scan on my pc and it was clean. I think for now my problem is solved.
But thanks a lot four your help, so cool that back there in Sweden there are very nice people!
