Step 9. Run Ransomware Scan

[This step applies only if you have included at least one restore plan in the Plans to test list at the Choose Plans step of the wizard]

At the Ransomware Scan step of the wizard, choose whether you want to check restore points created for machines included in the plan for possible ransomware.

By design, Orchestrator checks only the most recently created restore point for each machine and stops plan testing if the restore point is infected. For more information on ransomware scan, see How Orchestrator Performs Ransomware Scan.


  • Ransomware scan is supported only for Windows-based machines.
  • Ransomware scan is supported for restore points stored in on-premises repositories only.
