I have some folders on a USB flash drive that disappeared. I did a anti-virus scan and cleaned the drive but still cant see the folders. I thought that they were deleted by the scan ...but when I do a scan of the USB drive alone ... they show themselves as being present.
So far I have gone into folder options and made all folders visable...no luck. Went into registry and changed a Hkey value from 0 to 1 in folder option...no luck. Did another scan of the drive and it is clean, no viruses.
How can I get back my folders? I am using an updated Norton Corporate 7.61 anti virus / Malwarebytes / Glary Utilities.
