Is this laptop sufficiently "quarantined" though? I know people who would run Google's backup and sync tool on shoddy machines and then saw their entire Google Drive get cleaned out because the sync tool would silently remove the files which were disappearing in batches after each checkdisk run.
Oh my, you have a valid point.
I think though, that the encrypted files don't replace the originals, they just get deleted, so in theory they'd all be there in the Drive Trash folder, right?
It gets all messy when it comes to folders shared with many people with files in them owned by yet others.
