To clean out your quarantine regularly, with a variable limit on how 
long you keep files, take a look in /etc/cron.daily/clean.quarantine. 
There are a couple of settings at the top that you might want to change.

1) $disabled = 1;
Set this to 0 if you want to enable this process at all.
2) $days_to_keep = 30;
This is, as it says, the number of days you want to keep in the quarantine.

Just change those 2 numbers and save the file. It will enable itself, 
you don't need to type anything to make it go.
