Future Windows Update Will Protect Your Files from Ransomware

Microsoft is working on the Fall Creators Update that includes some pretty handy security features. One of these main features is the ability of the Operating System to block ransomware from encrypting your files. This is accomplished through a feature called "Controlled Folder Access" and it's really not that groundbreaking when it comes right down to it. If you don't think Microsoft can fully protect you though, there is always amazing software from Acronis that can help keep you safe and secure.

Consumers can enable the feature through the Windows Defender Security Center app by clicking the shield icon and toggling on Controlled folder access. It automatically protects Windows system folders and default locations such as Documents, Pictures, Movies, and Desktop.
