Windows 10 stores its backups in a protected folder, e.g.
E:\System Volume Information, and only the SYSTEM account has full access to it. Does this make it safe from ransomware that encrypts files? Even when running 'As administrator' I cannot seem to access that folder, so it looks pretty safe, right?
And what about the Windows 10 File History feature, is that safe?
Just a note: @SilverlightFox is right, backups are not stored in the
System Volume Information folder, as I thought they were, but rather in a folder having the same name as the computer, e.g.
E:\MYCOMPUTER where E can be any drive. By default, this folder is accessible by the SYSTEM user and the Administrators group.
