So i've been using an 8gb Sandisk Cruzer Blade flash drive, and suddenly all my files changed to shortcuts, and i can't access them. When i try to open it, this is what happens. It says "Windows cannot find 'G:\.Trashes\e2a38afd.pif'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." Can someone explain this and teach me how to restore my folders from being shortcuts?
