The other day I accidentally clicked something and it downloaded a trojan virus. I successfully removed the trojan from my computer, however, it attacked my usb drives and turned everything into .lnk files. It still says that the drives have the same amount of memory used (140 gb and 7.2 gb) and the .lnk files are only about 500kb each with about 10 different files. Is there a way for me to save my information and not have to just reformat the drives? and no, I unfortunately did not create a backup for the drives.

I have windows 7 Basic.
