I used my hard drive in school and when I came back and connected it to my laptop, all the files were turned into shortcuts.
The laptop said to scan and repair the hard drive so I did, but after that, all the files disappeared and a folder named " $recycle.bin " appeared.
I tried everything, including the cmd "attrib -h -r...." one, but it tells me "access denied".
What should I do?
Should I delete the virus first?
and will the files get deleted as well if I deleted the virus?
Cuz the files are still there since the hard drive is still full and when I scan the files are there as well
