ALL FOLDERS ON MY USB HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO SHORT CUTS


This is usually a signal that a virus is at work. Check that your computer has been checked and is clear. Then check your thumb drives-all of them including your external hard drives.

Download and install Malwarebytes. It's a free malware removal utility that works great.

Two important notes:

1. For it to be completely effective you'll need to update it prior to running a scan.
2. Many malware programs actually prevent the installation of these types of programs, it may be necessary to start your PC in safe mode (F8 during the boot process) to get it installed.

Finally, once the malware is removed, you can download a free personal version of AVG anti-virus to help protect your machine in the future.

4 gb usb creating shortcuts folders


I think you are referring,that there are folders and shortcuts which are not created by you and its generating automatically?
if this so, Its an action of a virus. - Run full system scan using a up-to-date virus scanner.

ALL folder turned into shortcuts and i really don't know how to get back my stuff. You know the hard drive has music shortcut document shortcut. Somebody help me.


You must have had them all selected and then dragged them somewhere, then maybe dragged back, creating shortcuts at that location. This could be done accidentally by holding the ALT key (or if that key is stuck down) while dragging them back or by holding the right mouse button instead of the left. If it was the right-button thing though, you would have had to also left-click on 'Create Shortcut' on the menu that popped up.

If this is what happened your 'real' folders will be wherever you dragged TO and the shortcuts will be wherever you dragged BACK to.

The fact that there are shortcuts is not alarming. Your originals must be somewhere! Use the Search function to search for any file or folder name you can remember. Start at the root of the system (My Computer) to search everything; it could take a while so be patient. When you find the missing folders just select them all and drag back to where they belong (or Cut from current location, Paste in new location).

What do I have to do to start copying file to the external hard drive. Looks like I am just getting shortcuts. The file folders have the small black arrow indicating a shortcut


Hi right click on the file you want to put on the ext. hard drive. You will see a option "send to" click that then choose the ext hard drive. This will sent the whole file and not just a shortcut. Thank you for using Fixya.com
