Ransomeware infections are numerous and very destructive. They infect you silently and encrypt all your data files. You then have to pay the hacker criminals to get them back . Be sure and backup all your important data files (pictures, documents, music or whatever you want to keep) to an external drive and then disconnect it from the computer when you are not using it. Ransomware infections can also encrypt your external drive if you leave it connected to the computer.
A cloud backup service is another alternative. It backs up your files while the computer is on and connected to the internet. The idea is to have a backup made of some type. Also hard drives fail and it's much more expensive to recover data from a failed hard drive than it is to purchase and use an external drive or cloud backup service. Remember a backup is a second and/or 3rd copy of your data, not on just one drive either.
