Woohoo backups!

im something of a tinfoil hatter when it comes to such attacks, but If you can afford to blind wipe your drive and rebuild it’s probably the better option.  There are a lot of randomware types.  Some of them hide other things on the drive when they encrypt things.  I personally would suspect everything on the system capable of holding data and would update my bios as well.  Also anything that I plugged into the machine such as USB sticks.  Also there’s a non zero chance that any data on the drive such as passwords for anything stored in any software might already be in the hands of the ransomware creators.  Changing passwords might be the better part of valor too.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Prevention still is better than cure, learned that the hard way myself, bud. Says on this site that there are anti-ransomware tools, but they're probably better before the attack and not after. There are free ones too.
