In March my laptop was infected with Cryptolocker. Whilst it was easy to get rid of, the damage was immense. I read up about all the ransomware issues, abandoned it and I switched to my other laptop.
Anyway, I found a registry entry that listed all the files it 'locked' - 17240 in total! - at this location.
I see that crypotolocker was in the news a few weeks ago.I wondered if there had been any definite fix, reversal, or ability to retrieve the files?
At the time, whilst most of my stuff was backed up, I still lost about two weeks work (jpegs, pdfs, pngs, txts, docs) that I'd like to retrieve. If its really not possible, then I'm just going to format the drive, as its running very slow and most of the programs that contain any of those file extentions no longer run properly, as the progams contain some of those file extensions
Best wishes, R
