    Default No Backups

    I've run Spybot many times and it has found and removed a lot of spyware but when I go into Recovery there is nothing there. How do I enable or access backups? Thanks

    If you just removed Cookies this is normal. Cookies will reinstall if you visit that special page (unless you are blocking them) - so there is no need for backups. Please check your settings: run Spybot-S&D and switch to "Advanced mode" via the menu bar item "Mode". Now select "Settings" --> "Settings" in the navigation bar on the left. There the three checkboxes in front of "Create backups of ..." should be ticked, so that the recovery works. After 30 days the quarantined files will be deleted automatically. This can also be adjusted in the settings page at "Age of recovery". If you click on that item you can set the period of time.

    Best regards
    Team Spybot
