I have an external hard drive infected by the ransomware and I believe the re-encrypting program is still on it, how do I get rid of it without infecting my free laptop?

Please bear in mind that I have the EEK, adwcleaner, on the PC now.

Is it safe for me to connect it to my laptop and scan with the EEK? or what would you advise?

So should I still go ahead to scan it? I believe you could help out in case of re infection

It will only reinfect the system if you manually execute it. As long as you don't do that, connecting the drive to scan it is safe.
