Windows 10 tip: Turn on the new anti-ransomware features in the Fall Creators Update RRS feed

All replies

  • I used that feature from the day 1709 went RTM. It does not seem mature, yet. My experience (on several cleanly installed machines) included the following

    -inconsistent behavior: sometimes an application writing to a protected folder was blocked, sometimes it wasn't

    -even explorer.exe is blocked sometimes although it should be whitelisted by default

  • This inconsistent behavior continues in 1803 (Insider P. 17115) - has MS given up on that feature already?

    Take a VM, turn on ransomware protection, create a text file on your desktop, try to modify it with notepad, gvim, notepad++ - the behavior is horribly inconsistent. Unusable feature.
