Re: What to backup to protect against ransomware

Hi @ecommweb


Thanks for the post. 

Usually, Ransomware targets user files and program database files. 

As a rule of thumb, I would consider the following: What I need in order to re-install the Operating system and to start working again as soon as possible. 

So basically all files and folders which cannot be replaced by a re-installation of the Operating systems and installed programs. 

I hope this helps.
