Hello,
Once when I plugged in my pendrive, it appeared as a shortcut but then I got that problem resolved by creating a batch file there and retrieved my data. I formatted the pendrive. I transfered some data to the pendrive and then again used it it again appeared as a shortcut. I again formatted it it again happened. How to solve this.? please help.
I have a sandisk Ultra 32 GB OTG pendrive.

Hi Shan,

You have done some pretty good job, retrieving your data. In order to solve the shortcut problem, I would recommend you to open the Command Prompt and use the attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* command, where g should be your drive letter. I leave you a link, where you can find some more suggestions and details.
