Re: Ransomware

The best and only true way to stay protected from ransomware is to have all your files and folders backed up. Either externally or via the cloud. Once infected by ransomware your files are encrypted. Removing the ransomware is the easy part. Getting back all your files si not so easy unless they are backed up. Norton Power Erase or Norton Rescue can remvoe ransomware. Then once removed you can replace your files from your back up.

Hello

If you use an External Drive for backups, please remember to unplug it after doing the backup.

Thanks.
