Some days ago I apparently downloaded the cryptolocker virus somehow. Initially, I didn't know that I was really blackmailed, so I just formatted my pc because I was planning to do so either way. When I formatted my pc I connected my external drive which was connected to the pc before I formatted it. And then I realised that I was screwed, because half of my files were encrypted (mostly all of my mp3, jpeg and mov files, the rest of the files were ok). I tried to use decryptcryptolocker, but when I upload a file it doesn't get that my file is encrypted... Also I don't have previous versions of my files... just some copies of some of them.
I am sure that there is a way to decrypt my files because I phoned a data recovery company and explained the situation and they told me that they can recover my files, but I have to pay 200 euros. So please, is there anyone who knows how to solve this problem? If so, I will tattoo his or her name on my forehead!
Thanks in advance!
