About Ransonware Module
« on: January 28, 2021, 04:13:05 PM »
Hello guys,

I would like to know if the folder paths defined on the Ransomware Settings also considers sub folders? Or just files?

For example, let's say I have the following folder:

"C:\Users\Tonanet\Download"

If I define the path as "C:\Users\Tonanet" in Ransomware Settings, will "Download" Folder be protected as well?

Thanks for you time!
