Hello,


Check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1: Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator" https://ccm.net/downloads/security-and-maintenance/5911-autorun-exterminator/

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your External hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your External hard drive and also from the drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK. Here I assume your External hard drive 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 : Replace the letter g with your External hard drive letter.

Now check for your files in External Drive.

Step 3:After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

https://ccm.net/downloads/security-and-maintenance/4621-malwarebytes-anti-malware/

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.

This type issue could be caused by a USB virus. It will spread to all of your USB memory devices and hard disk.

Here is a tool to remove the virus and vaccinate your USB against further viruses.


Download UsbFix (created by El Desaparecido) on your desktop.

http://ccm.net/download/download-24089-usbfix

If your antivirus gives an alert, ignore it and temporarily deactivate the antivirus.
Plug in your usb devices (Flash drive, pen drive. External HD etc...) don't open them.
Double click sur UsbFix.exe.

Click on deletion
.
Let the tool work.

At the end of the scan a report will show which you can copy and paste here..

The report is save at the root ( C:\UsbFix.txt ).

You can also vaccinate against any virus.
