Hello,

Folders in my external drive changed to shortcuts and could not open. I tried using cmd prompt " attrib -h -r -s /s /d d:\*.*" but it gave me that message " access denied - D: System Volume Information.

What shall I do to remove the shortcuts?

Please Help

Hello,

"System Volume Information" folder contains all your restore points. Default it

will be in hidden mode. So the folder like "System Volume information" doesn't

have the permission to the user to access it. So don't worry about it. Enter

that command, wait for a while until the process get completed and then make

sure that your files are removed from hidden mode.

Good Luck.
