How to decrypt .leon files after Leon Ransomware infection?

You may attempt to decrypt files infected by different versions of Leon Ransomware manually. Modern ransomware threats use complex encryption algorithms and try to prevent users from decrypting their files by disabling System Restore option, removing Shadow copies and previous versions of user files. However, in most cases, there is still a chance to restore your files using one of the described metods. There is also special advanced data recovery software, that can revive lost data in several clicks. This is not a guarantee for data restoration, but it is worth giving a try.
