Have a basic question for you MS SQL gurus. We recently have had a ransomware scare at our small business. We currently run a few applications that use MS SQL express and MS SQL full version. We are wondering if the directory(s) where the SQL data is stored is required to have a share on it. We are thinking that if we get nailed by ransomware that locks all of our files, would not making the SQL data itself unavailable to the network keep us from losing the data to the thief? Or would a SAN benefit us that is not connected to any internet connection? We do however back up our data to a Server across town through our Comcast business fiber which is stored at our sister company and vice versa.
