Windows 10: Locky Virus... help please!
No known way to decrypt the Locky virus yet so unless Equipe Microfix are the guys that wrote the virus they aren't going to be able to help you.
Please keep me posted if anyone figures out a solution thanks
Can you do anything in post # 4 ?
There is no solution.
You need to restore from a backup or start from scratch again.
I Have 5 drives on PC. One for Games & os, the other 4 is storage... will this effect all 5 drives if i get this viruse.. only thing im worried it the photos
It will effect all your drives...it did on mine
I have same problem. I Googled and tried some solutions for recovery. I used Get Data Back (recovery in all of modes), Shadow Explorer and Recuva (normal and Deep scan), but they didn't help me. I also searched in KasperSky decryptors, but i didn't find ".locky" decryptor (unencrypt) in them.
Sorry for not to tell any solution. I just want to tell the ways i tried. Maybe they help that the time is not wasted.
