I have problems accessing files in my removable devices (USB/flash disk, SD, external HDD). Files not inside folders can be opened but those inside folders cannot. My folders became shortcut links and I cannot open them to access my files. Below message appears:
Windows cannot find 'J:\.Trashes/b3fdadef.com'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.
There are also additional shortcut links created inside the removable device, like .Trashes.
The virus seems to be: Worm:Win32/Dorkbot.I. And it seems to create random .exe files.
Does this mean files in my removable device are now corrupted? I believe my files are still there, as seen during virus scanning or by checking disk usage. Help please on how I can remove this virus and view and access my files and folders properly. Critical is my infected external HDD, which are basically all my pictures, videos and important documents.
Thank you so much and hoping for an immediate response.
