I'm hoping someone can explain, at what point when a ransomware infection is encrypting a file does the original get destroyed?
I'm using Windows File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) as an early warning system to alert me (network admin) and the infected user that a machine on the network is infected. Currently I have FSRM running in passive mode so that an email is sent to me and the user saying that an attempt was made to create a file matching a known ransomware filename (e.g. filename.osiris) on the the file server.
If I put FSRM into active mode and actually prevent the creation of the file in the first place will this not just prevent the encrypted file from being created but the original file is still deleted?
Any advise appreciated.

I'm not very familiar with FSRM myself, but there is an active project for anti-ransomware purposes that is out there. You could reach out to them with any questions, they seem to reply quickly (I've reached out before to possibly allow them access to ID Ransomware's data).
