If the ransom is not paid, the owners of the infected computers will lose all their important files, which includes photos, videos and documents, i. And, the encrypted files will be restored, if the ransom is paid. That is why it is important that computer users make frequent backup copies of their files, in case their computers get infected with a ransomware malware.
