I just caught a ransomware that encrypted many of my files and I need to get them back. Now they all end in .NORVAS and I can't find a way to decrypt them back. I tried with data recovery pro, shadow explorer and easeus data recovery but no luck.
It may be possible to recover your data. However, the possibility is very, very unlikely.
There are a few utilities such as McAfee Ransomware Recover (Mr2) which can decrypt some ransomware encrypted files. There is no guarantee your type and variant of ransomware is supported.
You have three other options:
- Restore the data from backups if you have them.
- Pay the ransom - Note: There is no guarantee the data will be restored. I would not consider this option, unless the data was truly worth the cost of the ransom to you.
- Consider the data is lost.
Unfortunately, this is a harsh lesson for most people:
If you consider your data important, MAKE BACKUPS!
