If I create a Windows User account (I'll call the Account 'Bob' for this example) as Administrator, and then login to that Account, could I do the following...
- Remove 'Bob' from the Administrator's group.
- Create a folder on an attached drive (example E:\Vault)
- Change ownership of E:\Vault to Bob's account, and give Bob Full Control
- Remove all but Bob's account from the Security Permission entries
- Encrypt the E:\Vault folder using Bob's account.
- Log off from 'Bob's' account.
- Log back into my everyday account.
- Could Ransomware Encrypt Bob's Encrypted folder E:\Vault?
If I log into Bob's account, run my backups to save to E:\Vault, and then log out from Bob's account are the contents in E:\Vault safe from Ransomware?
I'd only use Bob's account when I run my backup script.
