Trojan in quarantine WD

I’m really paranoid, Windows Defender found a trojan that was immediatly put in quarantine and removed by using WD. It doesn’t appear in my WD history anymore.
But the thing is, by going in C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/WindowsDefender/Quarantine it still appears in the 3 folders (Entries, ResourceData and Resources).
I’ve looked into WD/Localcopy and WD/Scans/FilesStash and found absolutely nothing. (I’ve been checking internet for 30 minutes and i’ve seen people talking about these files so I checked them out)
So i’m wondering, is the trojan really quarantined ? Is it safe to not touch anything and to wait until it’s deleted by the system ? Can i completely safely erase the Quarantine folder content ?

Thank you in advance

(The trojan was in a zip file that I’ve never unzipped btw)
