“The decryptor requires access to a file pair consisting of one encrypted file and the original, unencrypted version of the encrypted file to reconstruct the encryption keys needed to decrypt the rest of your data,” Emsisoft explains.

“By default, the decryptor will pre-populate the locations to decrypt with the currently connected drives and network drives.”
