Great article! Very pedagogic! With that said, this approach could very well make you copy the ransomware encryption agent as well, spreading it to yet another host.

A safer approach would be to put the data you’re syncing in some kind of archive or similar before transferring it to make sure that the risk of accidentally retriggering the agent is as low as possible.
