After a Laplink transfer of data from my slow Windows 7 computer to faster Windows 7 computer, I discovered many of my programs and my data and photos were gone, or at least inaccessible, and I will assume gone.
I disinfected with Malwarebytes (which found and eliminated hundreds of items) and then Kaspersky TDS Killer anti-rootkit (which found nothing it disliked.)
Now I wonder if restoring my data/programs/photos which are backed up to my Seagate external hard drive could carry over some of the same malware that attacked my data in my computer. Is there some way I can examine and disinfect my backed up data without contaminating my computer?
Thanks for any suggestions,
