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."

I have downloaded the autorunexterminated from the forum: https://ccm.net/downloads/security-and-maintenance/5911-autorun-exterminator/

but it told me that the publisher could not be verify. Are you sure you want to continue to run this software

when i'm trying to download from this site:
https://download.cnet.com/AutorunExterminator/3001-2239_4-10912924.html?hlndr=1

it told me that it can harm my computer, so i cancel it..

What do i do to get my folders back? Please help me!

Hello,

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.
