How to repair pen drive all folder become shortcut [solved]


My young brother going to cyber cafe and attach his pen drives to the computer. Unfortunately all his data in the pen drive corrupted , all folder become short cut. If you are facing the same problem, do not panic because your entire file still exists but only hidden by virus.

Follow instructions below :
Start > cmd > and type your pendrive path , I assume your pendrive is G.

Enter this command : attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

Done.. :)


double check your pen drive and backup all your data before reformat your pen drive.

Another alternative is open your pendrive in MAC or Linux operating system and delete unknown file or folder.

i created a folder named autorun.inf, but it is unable to counter the autorun virus in my flash drive, what the virus does is it creates a shortcut icon for my usb and when clicked it opens a new window with my usb files in it. I'ts not harmful but it is very annoying. Tried the steps above in normal and safemode, format flash drive, and scan with anti virus(norton,kaspersky) but nothing helps. Is there another way to remove the virus?
