Good News about a Client + Word of Warning

So recently a client of mine took my recommendations on setting up an incremental backup with external drives they could swap out. Part of the reason I pushed for this setup was that I had another client just over a year ago that encountered an "cryptolocker virus", a type of ransomware. The idea is that if the infected files are encrypted by the malicious software, your backup will simply overwrite the good files with the infected files (thus making your backup useless). Anyways, I had just finished the backup setup about 10 days ago and lo and behold one of their computers was infected by the "Locky or .OSIRIS" malware. Rather than paying the ransom to these dirt bags to maybe unlock the files, we were able to quickly pull 99% of them off a prior backup.
Whoever you are, if you happen to be reading this, I urge you to stop procrastinating and get someone to help you setup a decent backup that will save you from losing all of your photos and documents. Don't know where to start with a backup? I would gladly give you free advice on where to start, just drop me a line and i'll e-mail you back.
