My 310gb transend hard disk all foders became shortcut lnk files size shows 2kb,please guide me to recover data?


Hi there,your external hard disk may be infected by virus.Firstly,remove the virus with anti-virus software in your computer.Then you can recover your files from hard disk with third party data recovery software.I have succeed to recover files from hard disk with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard disk to look for lost data.
By the way,you can download a trial version and scan your hard disk for free to preview whether your files can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

I recorded some films on it. Now it does not play and asks to be formatted. If format it all data will be lost. How to deal with this please?


Hello, From what you have said, i will suggest you get a good anti virus and scan your hard disk thoroughly, maybe it is a virus causing this.Right click on the hard disk and click on scan, note if your anti virus is not updatable, use somebody system with an updatable anti virus to scan it and lets hope its open, But if it does not then, if the data on the hard disc is not so important, then i will advise you to format it but if the data is very important then i will advice you to visit this site

Try to boot from your OS cd or recovery disc. Run the disk check software and see if your hard disk is mechanically ok or it crashed. If your hard disk is mechanically functional then run virus check on your hard disk. This will clean all the virus infections. And you will be alright hopefully.
If your hard disk's boot sector is damaged you may want to format the hard disk and place the boot sector in another portion of hard drive.

I AM HAVING A SLOW LOADING OF WINDOWS XP SP 1. I AM POSITIVE THAT MY LAPTOP IS HAVING A VIRUS. HOW CAN I FORMAT THE HARD DISK DRIVE?


Put in your recovery disk and restart the computer a clean install of windows will format the hard drive automatically! If you don''t have the recovery disk you'll need a windows disk to do the same.
Do you have it set to FAT32 or NTFS? If it's FAT32 you can pop in a windows 98 rescue disk and restart the computer with CD support type in A: and enter then you type in like this A:\ format C: /s
and it will prompt you to carry on by selecting Y for yes hit enter and start formatting.
You then have to remove the floppy put in your windows disk or rescue disk(which has windows XP on it) and restart and select install at the following prompts etc
You can reboot to Safe mode alternatively(restart and hit F8 when POST messages are displayed) and scroll up to safe mode and enter. If you have an anti virus software program installed you can run a scan and remove any possible viruses that way or if you know what the virus is use the search function and find and delete the infected files!

Your flash disk has been infected by virus that is why you are unable to open the flash drive. The best thing you can do is to download a good antivirus such as MacaFee or Avira or scan the flash drive for virus.

An alternative thing you can do is to insert your flash drive into a linux operated pc such as Fedora, Ubuntu, Open Susie or Redhat and then delete all the files in the Flash drive and format it

Do not showing full space


Hi,

I think the problem is due to a virus. Your system or hard drive (PAN drive) might have a virus. It is the virus causing your hard drive not showing full space. i suggest you install a good antivirus to your computer like kaspersky and NOD32 and scan the PAN drive and formate it. 
go to kioskea downloads - system - formatting, and download the USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL, 
intall it on your pc and use it to format your drive. its simple ans easy. another way is-
