How do i get back my files and photos from a dvd that have been stored in the form shortcut?
I have recently formatted my laptop, so i have backup my data...so i have saved them on a dvd.
But the files and folder were to big to fit on the dvd space so i thought of doing a shortcut...
Now when i'm trying to open the folders, it's not allowing me by saying: "The drive or network connection that the shortcut [folder name] refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again."
Shortcuts are just a link for quick access to where the data or programmes are situated. They do not contain anything. Since the laptop has been formatted, the data was erased and the shortcut has nowhere to link, hence the error message.
