We can easily get rid of these Malwares by scanning it with any good updated Antivirus (no need of Format as it leads to Data loss).
Problem arises when we try to access our data stored in the pen drive.
When we check property of the USB Drive, Disk usage shows there are files in the pen drive but inside pen drive we can’t find any!!
Rather we are left with some Shortcuts sometimes.
Don’t worry All the files are safe only they are made Hidden by the virus.
(Win 7 & vista) :
start->cmd (in search) -> open
It is better to open cmd as administrator:
right click the cmd icon (from search)->-> run as administrator(give admin password if required, else use normal run)
(Win xp users) :
start –> run -> type cmd -> Ok
command prompt will open now.
-> type ‘e:‘ hit enter
now pointer location will go to the drive.
3) type this command and hit enter :
attrib -r -s -h *.* /s /d
Hurray, all your files and folders are visible to you now!!
