My hard drive has two partitions: C: and P:. C: looks normal, but P:, which has all of my files, is empty. Properties show that Capacity and Free Space are the same.
I tried to search a specific file that I know is saved in drive P: and it shows up under Recent Documents, together with the rest of my lost files. Only they are shortcuts. When I try to open one, an error message says, "The drive or network connection that the shortcut "filename" refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available. And then try again.
I did a System Restore but nothing happened. I ran Malwarebytes, Spybot, SAS, RKill, TDSKiller, SystemLook, Unhide.exe by following what I found in your forums. They found several Trojans, Adware Tracking Cookie, Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallOverride and Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.AntiVirusOverride. So I followed the cleaning instructions, but it still did not bring back my files.
One thing I noticed in Malwarebytes. When I do a scan of drive P:/ it scans the C: drive instead.
Please help! Thanks.
