.Raldug Ransomware

This page aims to help you remove .Raldug Virus for free. Our instructions also cover how any .Raldug file can be recovered.

The problem with the .Raldug cryptovirus and other similar Ransomware infections similar to it is not that it will harm the system of the infected computer, that it will steal the personal information of its victims and threaten to spread it or that it will spy on whoever is using the computer. The actual negative consequence of an infection with this malicious malware piece is that all the personal data located in the computer would be made inaccessible after an advanced encryption process is used to lock up all the data located on the HDD of the targeted machine. This may not sound like much for those of you who do not have any important files inside their machines but the truth is that most users do indeed have some form of important data inside their computers and once the said data gets encrypted by a Ransomware like .Raldug, it could become a serious issue. This is especially true for people who use their computers in their jobs or for their education. Imagine getting all your work projects or high-school or college assignments locked-up by some insidious malware. This is exactly what would happen if .Raldug enters your computer and puts its encryption on the files that are there. Of course, the hackers responsible for all this have a “solution” for you – you can pay them money to get your files decrypted by a special key that the criminals would supposedly send you after you’ve completed the transfer of the ransom money. Or at least that is what the cyber crooks tell you in a message generated by the Ransomware that pops-up on the computer’s screen once the encryption procedure is over. Our advice for you, however, is to first see what other options you have and only then decide what to do next. Our guide that you will see next is one possible alternative course of action that you may want to check out.

What are the ways you can retrieve your data?

First and foremost, we need to warn you that sometimes, no matter what you may try, your data may still remain inaccessible for the time being if a Ransomware like .Raldug has gotten to it. Paying the ransom may look to some of you like a reasonable compromise but going for that may oftentimes not turn out the way you’d want it to. What we mean by that is the hackers may lie to you about sending you a decryption key and may simply accept the ransom payment and not offer you a way of liberating the locked data.

In our guide for removing .Raldug, we have also added a section dedicated to the possible alternative options of recovering sealed data. Also, you can look for any backups of your files you may have forgotten about that are on external drives, other devices and on cloud storages. Sadly, we can’t guarantee that our suggested methods of recovering your files will be effective but you will at least not have to deal with some sketchy cyber criminals by sending them sizeable amounts of money.
