Fix shortcut virus on flash drive
After you already settled down at home you decided to copy all the files you collected from your friend to your computer.
After inserting the flash drive and exploring the files, you discover that all files are shortcuts and this got you really worried.
You would have probably checked the files size of the shortcuts and noticed that they don’t correspond to what your flash drive says.
What you need to do now is to note down the Drive Letter of your Flash Drive e.g. “F:”
You can do this by Right-Clicking on the Flash Drive and then Click on Properties.
The Drive Letter is written under the circle that displays the capacity of the Drive OR look here:
Then open up your COMMAND PROMPT and type in the Drive Letter with a colon, for example, “F:”
Then type in this command” attrib F:*.* /d /s -h -r -s “ without quotation marks. Wait for some seconds and your files should be right where they should be. You ca now go ahead and delete the shortcuts.
