This post is related to getting your files back, at least most of it encrypted by ransomware.
I was affected with ransomware 2 years ago and spent a few solid weeks just figuring out how to get back my files.
I don't remember the sequence of action I had taken, but I remember removing Ransomware (saw a few posts of how to remove ransomware leaving files still encrypted) and my files were still encrypted. After trying many readily downloadable data recovery apps, none of them helped to recover the files.
After much required scans with Malware bytes and Spybot and what not, I moved the encrypted files to a different system - the files still woudent open in this new system either.
I had reinstalled windows on the affected computer, installed malware bytes and a few others, downloaded a bunch of conventional data recovery programs and transferred back the encrypted files via USB.
Again most data recovery programs failed to recover the files, however one(I wish i remembered the name) managed to recover i would say 60% of my photos and 30% of my files. The process of going through thousands of files to retrieve a few was a very daunting task, but I am glad I at least got back some files.
I hope the method of data recovery on a different / new system helps to get back some or most of your files and post here if it helped so others can try.
Note: You can try Testdisk and Photorec. These names ring a bell, but i cannot remember if they were the programs that helped.
Worth a shot !!!
