I've been trying to recover a family members files after they fell victim to the new .locky Ransomware - After managing to recover some files using Recuva I went looking for some further reading on the subject.
I came across the page linked below and on it a commenter said:
"Windows 7 has shadow files. Too bad those files are corrupt because of the LOCKY virus ... but ... we were able to recover those files with RECUVA, restore them and start SHADOWEXPLORER and go back 6 days to recover a shadowcopy from the lost data folder. In the end we recovered about 99% of lost files !"
Someone replied with:
"That's great news. So to be clear, you use recuva to restore an old SVC and then used that to restore the files?"
It was this that had me interested and confused...Anyone know what the SVC is?
This of course was on a page pertaining to networks and could be something to do with that and therefore has no relevance to home users.
Thanks in advance.
