G'day Kavlas, Welcome to linux.org

The files being "held" by redl would have been on the Windows 10 laptop...Correct?

If that is so, the best advice I can give you is to READ THIS carefully

Your files have been encrypted with ransomware, so I would assume both your laptops(or just the one with Windows 10) are probably infected because the files your external hard drive are.
Hate to tell you but you are probably screwed unless you made regular backups.

Do you know if your files were encrypted with an OFFLINE key.....OR an ONLINE key ?

When were the files encrypted ?
