Avoid being hit with ransomware

Social Media

A tip for anyone worried about ransom ware, one sure fire way to recover your data without gave to pay to the crooks is to enable volume shadow copies (or previous versions as IT people know it) and schedule it to run when your pc is most likely to be on, say 7pm in the evening.

Then if you get hit with ransom ware, you can just roll back to the date before the files were encrypted, but please bear in mind you may lose some work (just the files that don’t appear in that previous version) in the process.

So do a Google search for “enabling volume shadow copies” and save yourself a headache.

Or store your important files on something like Google drive, Dropbox, skydrive etc etc.
