Frequently Asked Questions
- Q: How do I protect my PCs from ransomware?
- A: You can avoid the pain of a ransomware attack by taking the following four steps to protect your PCs:
- Be smart about backup. Ransomware works by holding your data hostage. For those with no backup, an encrypted and locked hard drive is a disaster. The best solution is an automated tool that backs up all your systems to the cloud, where it remains safe until you need that data.
- Patch your computers. Patching is 100 percent essential, but it is not easy for organizations that rely on end user vigilance or manual IT means. You need an automated patching solution so patches are installed when they become available — on all Windows PCs and other endpoints and servers.
- Maintain an antivirus and anti-malware solution. With proper security protection across all your systems, incursions such as WannaCry will be spotted, blocked, and purged. Like patching, an automated solution that installs and updates security across all your systems is essential.
- Use a data protection solution, such as Acronis Backup 12.5, that includes Active Protection. With Acronis Active Protection, your PCs and the backup software itself are protected from unauthorized modification and encryption using a heuristic approach to detect and block suspicious processes, accompanied by white and black lists. Even if data is modified, it can be recovered automatically from a special cache. This ensures protection against malicious behavior patterns.
- Q: Is it necessary to back up my PC before updating Windows?
- A: Absolutely. Major updates to an operating system can often create computer issues for individual users. The best way to protect against those issues is to clone your hard drive so you can immediately restore your system if something goes wrong during the update. Acronis Backup 12.5 helps you create disk image backups of everything on your PC to protect the entire user experience — all system and user’s settings, preferences, contexts, even the layout of the icons on the desktop. Incremental backups will also help you save time during actual migration.
- Q: How do I recover a file that I accidently deleted?
- A: Users can utilize File Explorer to browse the backup, select the files/folders you need, and copy them to any folder on the file system. If the backup is encrypted, you will need to enter the encryption password. For more information on how to extract files from a local backup, refer to the Acronis Knowledge Base.
