Ransomware crawls into the system via viral additions in electronic mail, and then immediately starts to encrypt folders. The power of this virus is that it can be stopped only until it enters your system. When it is inside you prevent it from doing its job, and must face the aftermath. Almost all extensions of files that may appear on ordinary user's PC can be ciphered by this virus. Encryption takes from a few minutes to few hours. Encoding duration might change depending on the PC power and the number of data stored on it. The amount of ransom is USD.

You still have other ways to decrypt the data, however, they can't warrant you success.

How to restore files encrypted by Cradle Ransomware

The issue of Cradle Ransomware has only one effective solution - the load of backup. All other manners which are listed below can't assure the effective recovery. The main strength of backups is that they are kept on an external drive, and aren't sensitive for viral impact. Other manners are based on the OS in-built services, and their efficiency depends on the virus itself and the absense of practice. We can suggest you two complementary recovery ways. They are: the recovery with help of shadow copies service and the usage of special decryption tool. Decryption via special decryptor is pretty effective, but unfortunately, such a program is not created for now. News on the advancement in the creation of this program might be found on MalwareHunterTeam, EmsiSoft and Kaspersky lab official websites. Manual decryption using Shadow Volume Copies might be performed immediately. You may use the default Windows functionality, but, there are other programs, which will make this task easier. These programs are called Recuva and ShadowExplorer. Both of them are free, you might download them on the official web-sites, with detailed guide for their use.
