On my external disk i have a 'WindowsImageBackup' and 'FileHistory' folder and as a user i am not allowed to look in these folders. I even can not see what permissions are given. Is it still possible, for a ransomware virus, to encrypt the backup files? or should i 'unmount' the disk and 'mount' again to make the next backup? And what system accounts are allowed to use these folders? If i force my way in then something [account] is added and i do not get a warning message.
