I had to use my pendrive elsewhere and now even after running a virus scan it only has a shortcut, though I can see that all the files are there while running the virus scan. I've searched under hidden files too. I have files I need very urgently in it.

  • Choose "Clean" option.
  • A pop-up will follow
    Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, sd cards external drives, etc...)
  • Once you're ready, click "OK".
  • While cleaning, you will lose access to your desktop, but this is normal.

Thank you so very much it was such a relief to see all my files again. Thanks for the superb service you are giving "Not so savvy with tech" people.
