I totally agree @phbriggs2000
Just been trying to save a friends encrypted files on their "Backup Drive" due to the Australia Post scam/ransomware. They used Crypt0l0cker and I think I have saved about 100 files out of approx 30,000. The trouble with this ransomware attack is that it also hits network drives and USB attached ones and they leave a nice reminder of this in the warning/instruction texts they create:
"Your important files (including those on the network disks, USB, etc): photos,
videos, documents, etc. were encrypted with our Crypt0L0cker. The only way to
get your files back is to pay us. Otherwise, your files will be lost."
So Community Members and their families please don't leave your backup drives attached after a backup, remove them and store them safely until your next backup or when you have to restore.
