It would be really a Good idea if could Add a seperate Button "Purge All Quarantine Files" & "Clear Infected Status" & "Purge all Logs" on the SEPM Home Screen on in the Logs Screen.

Since it becomes very tidious job for a Administrator to Delete the Quarantine Files or Risk Logs in case if there are around 50000+ Quarantine files OR there are huge Log int he SEPM.

As long as there is a confirmation box that asks if you are really sure to prevent accidental (and permanent) loss of data.

Not getting threats on your machine would also be a good idea. Other than the issue with the tmp files I would hope no customer would ever have that many actual threats in quarantine.

I agree, this is a good idea for both the SEPM and when you are on a client PC.

With SEP12, Still Infected status is accurate so this should be less of an issue.
