Encrypted files on Server


New Member
I have a few hyper v servers 2012,2016 that have files encrypted on them from a few minutes over night on Dec 17th and Dec 18th. There was no ransom file and I have found no ransomware and don't believe it has happened since and have already restored the files. These servers are in a hyper-converged configuration. Could this be caused by something that was not malicious and just a server screw up on several computers. It only got so far on our large storage server but it only took minutes.

Let me guess you don't do nightly backups? Might be an expensive lessson.
