    Hi, I have a problem on my site and have been advised to reduce plugins to minimum, what happens to quarantined files if I remove your plugin? Will they be released back into site?

    No the quarantine is just a record in the database of the infections that were found, they will not be release if you remove the plugin.

    Also, I agree that it’s always good to remove any unused plugins and you can deactivate and non-essential plugins for troubleshooting too, but I would suggest that you reactivate any plugin like mine that might help you find and fix the infections that you are trying to clean up.

    Thanks Eli for prompt reply, no infection, just problems getting ithemes Sync plugin to work on the dreaded TSO Host. Have to prove to them its to do with their Cloud servers rather than blaming the wonderful plugin makers and the easy excuse that its a plugin conflict!
