Hello, I can access some of my files but the folder where 95% of my files was transformed into a shortcut and when I open it, it brings me to the "my pc folder." What should I do? please do help me with this.

Hi Requiemrachel,

I would recommend you to try using the Attrib command from the Command Prompt. It should look like this:

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* ( change g with your drive's drive letter)

For some additional suggestions, follow the link below:

I would recommend you to uptade your anti virus software and do a complete scan.

Hope this helps
