Mod Edit:  Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/493597/help-how-to-recover-data-from-external-hdd-infected-with-dorkbot-worm/#entry3046665 - Hamluis.



Close call... almost lost all data on externals. that's 4 terabytes of graphics.... this is what the path looks like(it's a worm from what I have read) look close.  %windir%\system32\cmd.exe /c"start %cd%.Trashes\b3fdadef.com &&%windir%\explorer.exe %cd%Fabby    ..... this is the culprit...  

.Trashes\b3fdadef.com &   (delete this part) 

it should look like this 

%windir%\system32\cmd.exe /c"start %cd%&%windir%\explorer.exe %cd%Fabby

 .....right click - properties - target (make change) - apply.   Once removed from this part of the path, you will be back in business. pass this on. I couldnt  find anything on the web about it other then a lot of people are being infected and it seems to hit only external drives. You will have to manually change each folder in the drive that you want to use. It dosn't look like it affects subfolders... hope this helps.
