How to protect destination drive from malware?

Post by nereus »

Hello

I got hit by the Spora ransomware, which turn all JPG, PDF, and ZIP files into garbage. Thankfully, I didn't lose important files.

Is there a solution to make sure the drive acting as destination when running SyncBack is off-limit to malware?

If need be, I don't mind getting a small NAS to keep the source and destination drives physically separate.

Thank you.
