Only found you a couple of days ago after searching for help on the .Locky/Zepto virus.

 

My wife's laptop was infected and she had the ransom message plus all files encrypted,

 

Following your excellent guide: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/locky-ransomware-information-help

I managed to recover all her files simply by restoring 'Previous versions' at the folder level.

 

We were lucky this time, but now realise we need to tighten up our backup and protection schemes.

 

So thank you for your help, I've just made a donation to support you.
