How to restore files encrypted by FrozrLock

The issue of ransomware has only one secure solution, and it is the load of backups. You must try other ways if you have no choice, but be prepared that they might not be successful. The major strength of backups is that they are kept on the separate drive, and aren't accessible for viral exposure. Other manners are based on the OS functionality, and their effectiveness may be lowered by the virus itself and the lack of practice. Anyway, in addition to backups, and the paying of ransom, you have to use two more ways to get back your files. They are: the restore from shadow copies and the decryption via special decryption program. Decoding with help of the special decryption program is pretty effective, but unfortunately, such a tool doesn't yet exist. Info about the advancement in the developing of the tool may be found on EmsiSoft, Kaspersky lab and MalwareHunterTeam official sites. Manual restore with use of Shadow Volume Copies might be done immediately. You may use the basic functionality of Windows OS, but, there are other programs, which will make this task much more simple. These programs are called Recuva and ShadowExplorer. Both programs are free, you may download them on the official sites, with itemized guide for their using. All these methods are completely described in our article about file decryption.
