I have an understanding of how ransomware works to a certain extent. But, I would like some input as to what it can do if the volumes/drives that are on a workstation are not visible or are not formatted according to a Windows workstation.
In my setup I have two situations.
I use TrueCrypt (old program but it works for me), in which a reserved drive letter appears as an unformatted drive unless you mount your personally secured/encrypted drive. In this case, the Ransomware would only see an unformatted drive (let's say drive X:).
I have a partition that I set to hidden using a partitioning tool.
In either of these scenarios, can a ransomware attack actually take out the data or not?
