Any way of restoring items quarantined on one machine to another machine?

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I'm starting to learn about computer security and have a vm lab setup at home that I would like to test to see what some of the malware that was on my old computer was actually doing. I had cleaned them using mbam, but have no idea how to restore those files to the new machine. I still have the entire quarantine directory but have since retired the other machine.

Hello and :welcome:

I do not believe you can restore the items to a different computer. When the items are placed in the quarantine folder they are encrypted so you can't just copy them either.

I think you should be able to do that so that you can determine if something is malicious without reinfecting your computer.
