If all your files are already encrypted, your only option is to restore them from your backups. If the encryption process hasn't yet completed, then first remove the virus, then you can try using shadow copies to get previous versions of the files, or look for a temporary directory on the PC where the original files were placed before they got encrypted. The virus removes all those just before it has finished it's job.

One thing you should also do is to inform your local law enforcement agencies. They might then be able to gather some info to help them apprehend the crooks in the future.

Whatever you do, never pay the ransom, that just encourages the crooks to keep on, and it by no means guarantees that you will actually receive the decryption keys in return.

This type of ransomware uses very strong encryption and you generally can't get your data back without handing over money. You should not do so unless the files irreplaceable. Don't deal with criminals if you can avoid it.

Once you have removed the infection, you won't get your data back even if you pay up.
If the time is up you won't get your data back even if you pay up. (The decryption key is destroyed).
If the infection is still there and you pay on time you still might not get your data back .....
(they just take the money and run)

This type of ransomware spreads from network share to share, so beware!
For this reason, you should leave backup devices disconnected unless needed.

You will find some possible recovery hints relating to shadow copies etc. here

If it was my PC, I would wipe it and install everything again .....
AND then take an image for a future quick re-install.

Be very wary of running email attachments (Even from people you trust)
and consider using this in the future

You can also check Kaspersky blog as I heard they have legitimate decryption keys.
