Re: Remove .Locky Ransomware and Restore the Encrypted Files
« Reply #15 on: February 26, 2016, 08:59:05 am »
@Execute - yes, but unfortunately - not many. EaseUs recovered some files and Stellar phoenix recovered a few more, but the majority of my files, which i needed are still locked. :( I have saved them in another disk and will wait for a decryption tool or another method. Can you write to me and keep me updated if anything new is found?

@James,
sorry to hear that, but I guess there isn't much we can do. Saving the files is the right course of action.
We will keep you posted if there are new developments, undoubtedly!

Kind Regards,
Execute

Hello, James

Try scanning multiple times for your files and let us know how that goes for you and if the results are the same or no. We are currently monitoring most of the big security companies who are aware of the situation and will let you known as a reply in this forum topic if a relevant decryption method has come out.

PS: We are also researching on new recovery software that is cheeper or for free and will keep you posted.

Meanwhile, if you know how to disassemble your hard drive, take it to your local data recovery expert and try it this way. If he or she is not able to recover the files, they usually may not charge you money for that.

Good Luck and Best Regards,
Never

@never - well, the extra scans didn't recover additional files. Thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it. I hope you find something that could help more. I don't want to touch my hard drive and besides, I don't know any data recovery experts where I am.

Thanks again!
