    Windows Defender Group Policies

    I am running Windows 10 (AU) 1607, and under the Windows Defender Group Policy setting I had set the Send File Samples when Further Analysis is Required to be SEND SAFE SAMPLES.

    What is the difference between Send Safe Samples and Send All Samples?

    Thanks in advance

    The Windows Defender service sends all files marked as “safe” and prompts for the remainder of the files.
    Marked Safe = False positives.

    I thought "safe samples" didn't contain personal info whereas "all samples" could contain it.

    That was the distinction in the privacy settings upgrading to CU anyway.
