Could you please help with a few questions about Defender Antivirus in Windows 10, after recently getting the 'review files' question, clicking send, only to find nothing happened as the file had either moved or been deleted, I am wondering wether to use Automatic Sample Submission, I had previously not used it as I had some concerns.

I believe that if Automatic Sample Submission times out the suspicious file is allowed to run.
If automatic sample submission turned off, what does Defender do with suspicious files while waiting for a user to review the list, does it block them or allow them to run? Does it have the same 10 second timeout? (without the use of extra software)

What happens when you click send file via Defender, does it open the webpage to send files? How do you find out the status of any files sent through Defender? (automatically, or manually).

Does Defender ever send personal info by mistake, without asking you to review?

Many thanks
