I am having data loss issues with my 500GB External Hardrive. I have been storing my iTunes media library folder on the hardrive. While mapping the library I accidentally used the general hardrive folder instead of creating a subfolder. I don't know exactly what happened but when the library was finished setting up all my other files located on the hardrive were given an unusable extension and the following message kept coming up when trying to access them G:\RECYCLER\0x6CF0D62D.exe Please help!

You should be using your external for backup, not storage. When catastrophic failures like this occur then its only a matter of formatting and re-backing up everything to the external.

Sit tight and maybe someone has some ideas.

Hello, possibly a Win32/Dorkbot.A worm. Have you use a flash drive on this PC?

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
  • List Minidump Files
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.
