Securing Shares from Ransomware with Snapshots

Postby decstewartje » Wed Sep 13, 2017 3:36 pm

Hi there,

Using Time Back with 5x, you were able to specify a folder on a different partition on the NAS for snapshots. I don't see this option with 6x Snapshot Replication. I assume the snapshots are all created on the same volume as the shared folder itself.

If the snapshots are "visible", it creates a #snapshot folder in the share.
With these shares being mapped, they are susceptible to ransomware. My question is... are the snapshots exposed to the ransomware as well when they are visible, and are they protected from ransomware when not visible?
