I type "attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*" in the command prompt just like in your other discussion to recover files that are hidden by recycler virus but the "access denies" takes for ever to load that it took me an hour to finally just close it and not 5 min in your other discussion.
The device is a external storage of seagate with 1T and partiton in 4.
I only recover 1 partiton the other 3 takes forever to load when I type the command and the "access denies takes 7-8 lines" not 4-5 lines as what you said in other discussion.

Is There another way to recover the files?

Hello,
# Download UsbFix on your computer, and launch it.
# It will start automatically, and a shortcut will be created on your desktop.
# Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, external drives, etc...) Do not open them.
# Choose " Deletion " option.

#The computer will re-start, and it may be longer than usually.

# UsbFix will display a message at re-start.

# Click "OK" to start cleaning.
# Copy/paste the report here.
