Okay, so my USB got corrupted folders and accidentally told COMODO Antivirus to delete a VERY important folder. Is there any way I can get this folder back?

Also, this is on Windows XP running some latest version of COMODO.

Usually when an anti-virus removes anything, it is placed in a virus vault (chest) or a dedicated Quarantine folder and remains there until you take steps to delete it. One reason for doing this is to prevent deletion of a legitimate file file that may have been flagged as a false positive. If that is the case, then you can restore the file and add it to the exclusion or ignore list.
