Comodo Privacy Cleaner generates a backup of the folders/files deleted during the privacy cleaning operations if the option Backup files before cleaning in the Privacy Cleaner > Settings menu is selected.
The backups are stored in date and time stamped folders in the location of your choice. You can store the backup files in your computer locally, on a computer in your network or even in an FTP server. This back-up function enables you to restore the registry to a previous state in case you encounter some system failure or if you want to undo any changes To understand and manage your Comodo System Utilities backup please visit Settings > Backup Settings section.
You can disable this option in Settings of the Privacy Cleaner.
Note: Comodo strongly recommends not to disable back-up option.
