QBI and QBD files
In C:\users\all users\Norton\some key\nav_someversion\Qbackup\many different keys: I have several gigabytes of files with QBI and QBD extensions. In looking through the forums, it seems most likely that these are quarantine backups. I am certain that I do not need to restore anything from any quarantine backups. Is it safe to simply delete all of these files? Even worse than taking up disk space, for some reason these files refuse to be marked with the archive bit so my incremental backups back multiple gigabytes of them up every time the backups run. If this means there is some protection mechanism that will also block me from deleting the files, please explain how to circumvent it. I have tried looking at the Quarantine listing in NAV, but it just sits there without loading any quarantine files. I haven't had the patience to let it run for the hours it apparently needs to load all of these quarantine backup files. I have been using NAV for many years, so the quarantine backup files could be from multiple previous versions of NAV.
