How to restore files encrypted by Wanna Decryptor

In this article we have mentioned several times that the customer whose computer is captured with ransomware has only one completely reliable manner to recover data: to load the backups. All other techniques which are described below cannot guarantee the outcome. The fact that the backups are kept on external media, makes them virtually immune to Wanna Decryptor. All other methods are based on the Windows in-built services, and their success may be lowered by the complexity of the virus and the absense of practice. We can suggest you two supplementary restoring techniques. You might try the recovery from shadow copies, or a special tool to recover the files. The issue lies in the fact that now there is no decent decryption program for this virus, and we have no idea about when we can expect one. Information on the progress in the creation of this tool might be seen on EmsiSoft, Kaspersky lab and MalwareHunterTeam official sites. By-hand decryption via shadow copies can be performed immediately. You might use the built-in Windows functionality, but, there are other tools that will make this job simpler. These programs are completely free, and they are made by well-known developers. They are called ShadowExplorer and Recuva, and you may see more details on their official web-sites.
