I want to remove an extra.dat file from my endpoints with EPO. I have deleted the extra.dat file from the master repository and hoped that after the autoupdate the extra.dat file would be deleted from my endpoints but nothing happenes.
How can I remove the extra.dat file from my endpoints ?
Yes you can delete it from ePO master repository but Extra DAT file can't be remove from ePO console on local machine. It can be replaced by new extra dat file but you can't delete.
Best option is remove locally extra dat file on machine and restart the system. But if will OK for few machines not for all the clients.
The best and quick way is to create a pup (Unwanted program) user detection for Extra.dat. Then do a Scan in the Engine McAfee folder and the extraDAT will be detected and deleted
I have the same issue, after McAfee Support make a BIG MISTAKE sending me an Extra.dat that deleted wrong files, I have to remove from my endpoints and dont know how do it, manually in 2000 endpoint its a joke
Please open a service request (or continue working with the request were the extra dat is provided), im sure the point product (ENS) has a way to restore files if they are quarantined but please continue working with that team under an SR for this
