Microsoft identifies Cryptomator Encryption (wrongly) as Ransome-Issue

by encrypting all my files on cloud … I’ve received dozen of MS-Emails with warnings for a “possible Ransome-Issue” … and I had to answer those issues.
With those warnings MS is saying that such files, if deleted, won’t be able to be recovered after 30days… even if your recycle bin is keeping files longer …
This did not happen with Boxcryptor - not sure what is running different here … maybe Filename-related…

…just keep this “risk” in mind …

Hi.
See here: OneDrive Ransomware Protection kills Cryptomator - please support!

The ransomeware detection of Microsoft is just not good. I also am using OneDrive, but in my case I never had a warning at all. Some others (like you) have. Unfortunately Microsoft put the poll down that was started to vote for an option to disable this „feature“.
