Change Quarantine folder's location

In order to change the location of the quarantine folder you will need to delete the folder and create a new one. In order to achieve that please follow these steps:

  1. Create the new folder that you want to become the new quarantine folder in Windows Explorer.
  2. Stop Policy Patrol services (Note: Policy Patrol will not process any emails).
  3. Go to your current quarantine folder (default is C:\Program Files (x86)\OPSWAT\Policy Patrol Email\Data\Monitoring).
  4. Move all the files from the current quarantine folder to the newly created folder.
  5. Start Policy Patrol services.
  6. Open Policy Patrol Administration console, right click on Quarantine node and select "New Folder...".
  7. Click on the "..." button and browse to the newly created folder and click "Next".
  8. Select the desired folder tasks for this folder and click "Next".
  9. Configure confirmation messages that should be shown when manually performing an action on a quarantined email and click "Next".
  10. Specify the folder's name and description (we recommend to name it in Policy Patrol as you named it in Windows Explorer when you created it) and click "Finish".
  11. Restart Policy Patrol Administration console and now the emails from the old quarantine folder should be displayed in the new one.
