« on: February 14, 2022, 05:09:50 AM »
Is there a way to test that the protected folders function is working?

Hi,

You can try this test.
1. On Windows, create a new folder
2. Place a random TXT file in it, add it under Ransomware Protection
3. Set Notepad as "blocked app" and then try making changes to the TXT via Notepad
(Ransomware Protection will prevent files in the protected folders from being changed if these actions are taken by blocked apps)
