Virus Problems with my usb and External Drive

hi.,

I've got a problem with my usb and external drive. This virus infects my usb and external drive. Virus behavior seems to hide my files. Whenever i plugged in my external or usb, it doesnt show my files. But when i go to my computer i can see that my Usb has some files in there because of the used space. Inside my usb was a shortcut of my usb drive. For ex., external drive in my computer (Drive F: Stealth).. And when i go inside my external it shows me again Drive F:Stealth Shortcut. I clicked it but it shows me nothing. How will i remove this without reformatting my usb or external drive ... Please help

Its simple scan them with Antivirus. I personally recommands Kaspersky or Bit defender.

Note: If the affected by Recycler.exe or Folder.exe Virus definitions Files may be lost. So first try recover the files in other file system Linux, Unix, Mac or try recovery tools

Yes, Scan with a good AV and then do the following to make your files visible.
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:\*.*

Note : Replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.

Now check for your files in Pen Drive.
( Remember to give space after attrib,-h, -r,and -s: and no space for /s and /d )

Go to folder settings, check "show all files" and copy your data somewhere and format it. Always use good antivirus and update it regularly. Install AVG/Avira/Esat

this is because your system is infected by two viruses, update your antivirus and scan, the virus will be removed but
for trying manually check all the TEMP folders of your system, you will find files like trustedinstaller.exe or some .cmd file, they are the reason behind all this happenings, quarrantine them with your av...
