Hello,

Files, images, folders in the pendrive are not opening. It's displaying the shortcuts. How to open those files. Can that be possible?

Thanks

Hello,

If you did not format your flash drive, then check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.
  • Step 1: download the file "http://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator AutorunExterminator"
    • Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your pendrive now.
    • This will remove the autorun.inf files from your pendrive and also from drives.
  • Step 2: Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK. Here I assume your pen drive letter as G:
    • Enter this command.
      attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*
      . You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and paste it. Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.
    • Now press "Enter".
    • Now check for your files in Pen Drive.
  • Step 3: After that, download http://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes-anti-malware Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
    • Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"
    • Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".


Good Luck.
