Arey my own laptop got affected by ransomware. Had to reset windows and erase everything completely.

This is not a hoax. It's happening.

Yeah, ransomware attacks are targeted towards individuals. Sorry for you.
But can you provide the basic information security that individuals need to take to not victimised of these attacks?

This is for everyone's reference. Guys there is a free Kaspersky ransomware detection tool. Keep that installed in the computer and it should at least detect the virus.

If you get affected by it, generally the virus just encrypts the files into something non-readable.

I am still researching into the exact way to recover these files but there are decryptors available for that - look for the exact type of virus it is and look for the decryptor for that.

My laptop got affected by something called the Phobos ransomware - it's a variant of the Dharma most probably

Coming to the possible solution - you will be able to boot into windows so you can easily go to Settings->Updates->Reset

And reset your PC to the last restore point (if you haven't updated your windows recently) or just clean your windows drive and reinstall windows (that is an option as well).

Your files and folders are not destroyed. They are just encrypted. So don't delete the files if you want to recover them. Take it to a security consultant or to your hard disk service center. They will probably charge you but will recover the files. That's the best option.
