Hello,

Try this 1

Follow all the steps as given below.

Check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

https://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

[Note : Make sure Dot Net Framework is installed in your PC to install the

"AutorunExterminator" OR

Click on the below link and download the Dot Net Framework

http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=25150]

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your external hard

drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your external hard drive and also from

drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" --> In search bar, type cmd. Right-click on the command prompt

that appears in the search and select "Run as administrator".

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Here I assume your flash drive as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your external hard drive letter.

Now check for your files in External Hard Drive.

Step 3:

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

https://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.

Hi S_Chandrashekhar,

Is this an internal drive? Please follow the steps provided by Computertech. If there is no progress, I strongly recommend you to test the drive on another PC and even on another type of OS. I would try using Linux Live CD, because no installation is needed. You only need to boot from external device and try accessing the data. If you manage to backup all the data and this is an internal drive, I suggest you to do a clean Windows installation.

Hope this helps
