If if you routinely backup your files, or if malware specialists create a free decryptor, file-recovery should not be difficult. You should know, however, that if those two options are nonexistent, you could lose your files. Paying the ransom may seem like an acceptable option to certain people, but we need to notify you that it does not guarantee file decryption. What’s likely going to happen is the hackers will just take your money and opt to not help you. We would suggest that you erase Erica Encoder instead of giving into the requests.
