I'm currently thinking about a proper defense strategy against ransomware. As a result of this I would like to myself (a standard local user, not an admin) with write access to as many locations as possible, including the backup target location if possible.
Part of this are of course the regular backups. I know that I can use duplicati, run as service / scheduled task to backup everything as admin or SYSTEM. Now I prefer Window's built-in File History feature because of the convenience.
Does the Windows File History feature honor NTFS access restrictions when doing a backup?
Or formulated differently: Does the backup function also backup the current restrictions and as which user does it try to access the backup target location?
