Hi Petr,

I had some time today and so I tested with both Avast One and Avast Free both version 22.6.6019 Beta.

The Registry solution worked. Hide Folders 5 now start up with both Avast Free and One.

Ransomware Shield sometimes work and sometimes doesn't. In Avast One,  for external drives, Ransomware Shield displayed this behaviour:

On PC reboot with external drive plugged in:

- RS doesn't work
- files deleted from external drive goes to its Recycle Bin.

If I pull out the external drive and plug it back in again,

- RS works
- files deleted are deleted permanently and doesn't go into Recycle Bin. RS makes the external hard disk into a flash drive where there is no Recycle Bin.

I then uninstalled Avast Free because of its UI problems, and Avast One because I want my deleted files to go into Recycle Bin instead of being deleted permanently.

Hi, I would say this is not Anti Ransomware feature, it seems more like a Avast Shredder (https://support.avast.com/en-us/article/use-antivirus-data-shredder/)

The above refers to problem with only Avast One and only after importing Settings. This problem doesn't exist in Avast Free. Avast Shredder is a Premium feature while I used free version, so it is disabled. So I don't think it is problem with Shredder.

I found the cause of this problem. Restoring settings from an earlier version of Avast One, and then restarting the PC, cause external hard disks to be treated as flash drives without Recycle Bin after they are unplugged and inserted later.

Earlier I tried Avast Free and its Ransomware Shield sometimes work and sometimes doesn't. But in latest beta 22.6.6021 (build 22.6.7351.528) of Avast Free, Ransomware Shield works fine even in protected folders on external drives. Thank you for fixing it.

Petr,

Please reply.

Hello ccm582, I reminded it to my colleague from the team responsible for this features so the answer is more precise. Stay tuned  ;)

Petr,

Please read some of my posts here since you were away esp. the Registry solution worked. Hide Folders 5 now start up with both Avast Free and One. TQ for the solution.

I installed Avast Free 22.6.6022 (build 22.6.7355.528) and it seems to work better than before. It can send malware to Quarantine faster than before. But every time I add, change or delete a Firewall Rule, the UI hangs for a few minutes. Hope your team can fix this soon.

Disappointing that no one replied as promised.

Anyway, I think I know the answer from the Youtube tests. Ransomware Shield and Behaviour Shield alone isn't very effective. But AV-Comparatives said they tested Avast with all the Shields turned on and it performed well at malware detection. So I suppose that Avast is to work with all the Core Shields turned on which means that it depends on the definitions either online or offline. But I do have concerns about zero day malware/ransomware.

Hi ccm582,

I'm working at FSPro Labs (a developer of Hide Folders 5) and we probably have fixed an incompatibility problem between Avast and HF5.
Download the latest version of our program and check if autostart works for you. If not, please contact our support team.
