    I'd avoid it given the poor software QA of their backup software.

    I completely agree with Steve C. Terrible experiences with their products, and their lack of assistance to resolve my issues - I'm glad I found Macrium Reflect (thanks to users on this wonderful forum)! It will take something special to win back my support to try their ransomware protection software...

    I prefer to use MBM which has the functionality built in.

    even Defender has some anti ransomware functionality these days (and more to come in 1803, I hear).

    Change Windows Defender Controlled Folder Access Settings - Windows 10

    Change Windows Defender Exploit Protection Settings in Windows 10

    True but regular image backups stored offline are the best protection. Get a Ransom demand - put two fingers up, restore backup .

    Hi,
    Problem is most ransom ware looks so like win-10 people get suckered in so easily thinking it's a normal MS popup message lol
    Blame MS for it's dull UI that is way too easy to duplicate
