hello everyone, I am in trouble this just today when I lost all of my files in my hard drive and flash drive. I checked the properties and it uses the same space, meaning my fil are still there yet, I can't see and use it... please help.
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.
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..
Navigate to my documents, organize, folder and search options and click the view tab.
Under the Hidden files and folders, select the show hidden files, folders and drives.
Uncheck the "hide extensions for known files" and "hide protected operating system files".
Right click your hidden folder (it's semi transparent) click properties.
Under the general tab, uncheck the hidden.
