    the quarantine is having more than 7000 files, and the browser is breaking and can’t select all to delete.

    I mistakenly runned an automated script that kept loading files in the root folder, and bps pro successfully quarantined all.

    However now i can’t  delete these files from the admin panel.

    tried to search for the FTP method, but some how wasn’t able to find it

    kindly point me to the folder to delete to get rid of these quarantined.. thanks

    another issue is with the number of files in the backup folder and the main plugin folder.

    is it normal to have all these files? as it’s taking space on my server.

    Clearing/Deleting excessive database entries in the Quarantine table and old quarantined files.
    If you have excessive quarantine database table entries and are unable to delete them using the Quarantine Delete Files option use the steps below.

    1. Go the BPS Pro > Tools menu/page > DB Table Cleaner|Remover tool tab page.
    2. Delete the quarantine database table by clicking the Drop Radio button for this database table: xx_bpspro_arq_quarantine
    3. Click the Empty|Drop button to delete the BPS quarantine database table. A new empty BPS quarantine database table will be automatically created.
    4. Use FTP or your web host control panel file manager and delete all folders under the BPS Quarantine folder located here: /wp-content/bps-backup/quarantine/

    The base size of /bps-backup/ folder is 65 MB for AutoRestore backup files.
    If you have excessive files or large files in your: /bps-backup/quarantine folder use the steps above to delete those files.
    If you have DB backup files in your:  /bps-backup/backups_xxxxxxxxxxx folder that will take up additional space. You can download and delete all zip backup files.
    If you have large log files in your:  /bps-backup/logs folder you can delete them.
    You can delete extra root.htaccess backup files under:  /bps-backup/master-backups/ folder.
    If you have a lot of plugins installed then the:  /bps-backup/plugin-hashes/plugin-hashes.php file can be large.  You can delete that file.  If you run another MScan scan a new plugin-hashes.php file will be created.


    Thanks for the detailed explanation..

    This is the content of the autorestore folder

    is it safe to delete it?

    The autorestore folder size is normally 60MB.  You must have some additional large files in the autorestore folder if it is 243MB.  Turn Off AutoRestore, delete the autorestore folder and run the Setup Wizards again.  If the folder size is still 243MB then you can just not use AutoRestore and turn it off.
