Hi there, long story short, my laptop has been infected with a rootkit. I am happy to format to get rid of it (as it is my understanding that a format is the only way to be SURE that it is gone), but my only question is... Is it possible that my external Drive that I have used to back up my data will be infected as well?
If so, what can I do about it?
I really dont want to go through the hassle of a format only to reload my files and find that I have the same problem.
Thanks in advance
