Is it possible to restore a file with a virus?

Recommended Posts

I have a hypothetical question:


Say you start a backup of a computer in January. You back up a file which has a virus in it which is *not* (at that time) detected by current anti-virus software.


The user then requests a restore of the file a month later -- when the anti-virus software would detect the virus.


My question: Would the restore of the file take place? Or would the restore be interrupted by the anti-virus software?


Just curious...
