Windows 10’s Fall Creators Update includes a new Windows Defender feature designed to protect your files from ransomware. It’s named “Controlled Folder Access”, and it’s disabled by default. You’ll need to enable it yourself if you want to try it out.
I think this could really be a good tool in your security arsenal. It even appears to be easy to manage, not overly cumbersome like some security software.
If you want to prevent ransomware, this may be very effective. I’m going to test it out and write a full review.
