I had the a variation of this problem, which was caused by the program CIEUHU.EXE. it sucked....

basically what it did was change all folders on my flashdrive to shortcuts, but the drive still showed that it had data. The fix for this is was relatively easy for me and I hope it works for you. 1. Go to control Panel, Folder Options -- select VIEW--- select Show hidden files and folders and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended) now click APPLY 2. go to your folders and it should show you all your folders hidden including the virus----- delete the virus and all the shortcut folders that have no data in them. create new folders and copy the data from YOUR hidden folders into them. once that is done delete the old hidden folders. 3. enter task manager--- find the program that is still running which will have the same name as the one you just deleted off the hard drive---- right click it and select open file location---- this should show you the virus location---- delete it! 4. return back to control panel, Folder options select view----- select DO NOT show hidden files and folders and recheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended) 5. Restart computer---- open task manager and ensure that the program is no longer running Hi Holligan13, 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Do you see the folders on the drive?

My data folders are changed to Folder shortcuts All files and folders on my flash/Pen drive are changed to shortcuts I have lost all my data on Pen/Jet drive due to virus, how to recover that?

I have heard such queries from many people, so thought this might be worth sharing with everyone to avoid risk of loosing data due to virus infection. If you frequently use Flash / Pen / Jet drives to transfer data from one PC to another, it might happen to you that one of the computers is not protected against virus attacks. Sometimes it might happen that all folders on your pen drive are gone! There are some shortcuts with samename present there and that points to some weired files (usually .scr). No need to panic as you may still recover the data. Remove the Virus: First of all, connect your pen drive/Flash drive to a PC that is protected with most updated version of a good antivirus and then scan it. Fix all the virus threats that are detected by the antivirus. Note: If you again connect the flash drive to a computer which is not completely protected by a good antivirus, you may help the virus find its new home! Recover the Data: Once all the infected files are removed from the pen drive, go to command prompt (CMD) on your computer and run the following DOS command. Here we assume that the Flash drive is G: drive. If its not G: then replace G with correct letter as applicable. ATTRIB -H -R -S /S /D G:\*.* Step 1: If you are affected by Shorcut Viruses,Do not format your Flash or External Drive. If you format you cant Recover it. Step 2: Check your Flash Drives Drive Letter ( Example : I: or K:)

Step 3: Click on Start >Run>type cmd and click on OK Step 4: If your Flash Drive Letter is K: then Type the below command in your cmd and Press Enter attrib -h -r -s /s /d k: *.* (Check the screenshot ) Note : Replace the letter k: with your flash drive letter

Step 5 : Now your files will be visible.Make sure to keep the antivirus up-to-date to prevent viruses. 1) Open up Folder Options (you can find it in the Control Panel or under the "Tool" menu on Windows Explorer); 2)Click on the "View" tab; 3)You will see a list with a lot of checkboxes, go ahead and check "Show hidden files and folders". Also make sure you uncheck "Hide protected system files"; 4)Now go to your external drive and you will see your folders back. Unfortunately, they cannot be changed back into regular folders manually (at least not in an easy way), so you will have a bit more work to do here. You have to create new folders somewhere else in your computer, (for example, inside a "usb backup" folder in My Documents) with the same names of the folders the virus affected. Ignore any folder with weird names (e.g folders you didn't have before catching the virus), as they may still contain undetected malware. You can also ignore the "RECYCLE" folder, as it is automatically created by the system if needed; 5)Now you can copy the contents of each individual folder into its duplicates, as the files itself will probably be untouched by the virus; 6)After you've finished copying the files, backup the files you still have in the drive's root folder (the one you first open when browsing your external drive), again ignoring any files with weird names, for the same reasons above. 7)Now, as a last safety measure, format your drive, to make sure you get rid of any possible virus. 8)Finally, copy your files back into the drive and you are good to go!

2) alhan: go to Start --> Run --> CMD and press enter Then type cd \ attrib -r -a -s -h /s /d
Hello, If you did not format your flash drive, then check whether the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run-->type cmd and click on OK. Here I assume your pendrive as G: Enter this command. attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*
