I had a friend of mine with a very small company and a Windows SBS 2011 server that got hit with ransomware.     Her backup drive was also taken out by the attack.    I was able to help her get a new server up with Windows 2019; however, it would be helpful if we could get her old files back.   I see utilities from McAfee and others that may unencrypt, but I know knowing about them.   We also have the backup drive and thought about sending that off to be recovered.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  The suffix on all the files is U8E598.
