Samsung s2 portable, folders are showed as shortcuts !

OK you harddrive is infected with Malware. This Malware creats shortcuts of each folder and Hide the all those your main folder.
You can scan your Hardrive with fully updated Anti Virus apllication .

To see all your original folder you can enable your Shown hidden File option from your Folder option--View--uncheck show hidden files and folder--and uncheck hide protected operating system files.

Here is the step to unhide your all files and folder in one go.
Step 1:

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

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your Hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your flash drive and also from drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your flash drive letter 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 : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

this should solve your problem.

My SmartDisk FireLite external hard drive is showing 33 GB free out of 55 GB. I had all of my and my wife's files stored on it, but now it only shows all of our folders as shortcuts and says the item the...

I believe some virus caught your computer. If you can't find you're files try this.
-Go to that hard disk.
-In the menu bar look for tools.
-Folder option
-In the folder option window click view
-look for hidden files and folders
-In the 2 radio buttons click show hidden files and folders
-click apply.
If this is correct there is a way to remove those hidden things.
-Select the file or folder you wish to not hide.
-right click and look for properties
-unchecked hidden files and apply

hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya!

I have a 500 gig portable hard drive and all of my files have turned to 1 kilo byte shortcuts how can i retrieve them back

This is going to be hard to hear, but those are just shortcuts, not the files themselves. Which simply means that if the shortcut no longer has a valid file to point to, those files are not and never actually were on the drive. I see this alot where I work as people do not understand how to actually copy their files for backups. Clicking and dragging often produces this result. In most cases if the original files are gone, then there is no way to retrieve them.
