If you're not in a hurry I guess that could work

found on Reddit

Often times people are in a hurry and want things cleaned up immediately, but free decryption tools aren't always available so you might think that  your only options are restore from backups or pay the ransom. There is a third option, however - hope and wait. Hope is not a great strategy for data recovery and you'd certainly not want to rely on it, but sometimes all it takes is time for a decryption tool to be developed.
