I have two external hard drives that have been infected by the Lockbit ransomware. I am 17 years old and I had in there thousands upon thousands of files, work and important information that is now encrypted. I have made some research as to how to remove or decrypt my files, but I still have not found any help our solution to decrypt the files contained in an external hard drive.

Hi, juiher.

1. Check if your files can be decrypted

The first thing you can do is to upload samples of encrypted files, ransom notes and any contact email addresses or hyperlinks provided by the cyber-criminals to ID Ransomware (IDR). This service is strictly for identifying what ransomware may have encrypted your files. It will attempt to point you in the right direction, and let you know if there is a known way of decrypting your files.

2. Check your computer

Regardless of the result, and if you think that your computer is infected too, please do the following:

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. --> IMPORTANT

If your antivirus software detects the tool as malicious, it’s safe to allow FRST to run. It is a false-positive detection.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Double-click the FRST icon to run the tool. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button and wait for a while.
  • The scanner will produced two logs on your Desktop: FRST.txt and Addition.txt.
  • Please copy and paste the content of these two logs in your next reply (or attach/upload).

Important:

1. Do not run any tool unless instructed to do so. Also, do not uninstall or install any software during the procedure, unless I ask you to do so.

2. Always ask before act. Do not continue if you are not sure, or if something unexpected happens.

3. I am still in training and my fixes have to be approved by my instructor, so there may be a slight delay in my replies. Look at it as a good thing though, since you will have two people looking at your problem.
