Hi all,
Am humbled to talk to you guys today, hope this finds you well. I have an issue that i believe you can be of help. I have a 1TB transcend portable hard disc which i bought with some files inside. I later found out that the files were affected. I don't want to delete the files because they are of importance to me. My question is, how can i safely scan the whole disc without loosing the files since i don't have a back up, and which software can do this best. The disc is not partitioned.
Thanks and regards,

Thank you
Hello,
# Download USB Fix 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.
