Yes you are safe if you restore from backup, IF YOU FOUND the malware and removed it. If not, more files could be next.

yes, you can just restore those folders, but be sure, as kimputer mentioned, that there are NO other files encrypted.  Also make sure that the computer that was the initial cause has been sufficiently cleaned/reimaged and that no other computer has been affected.
