Couple questions about Win10 “Controlled Folder Access “

I recently got familiar with “Controlled Folder Access”, but before using it some questions raised in my mind:

1) What happens to folders under Win “Controlled Folder Access” after formatting OS partition? Will access to them will got reset, or I will need to have old admin password to access it, or something similar?

2) Is this really protects us against crypt-ware? If a virus will inject itself into an exe that has a folder access, will that mean it has access too? Or Win. checks exe’s signature? Dose that mean I will need to re-give access to exe’s if they got updates?

Thx in advance.
