E:\Photos is unavailable. If the location is on this computer.... If it's on the network.... if you still can't access it then it's moved or deleted.
The following has been attempted to resolve the issue:
Changing the driver letter.
Uninstalling and Installing the USB driver.
Malwarebytes full scan. During which you can clearly see it is scanning the files within the photo folder. It never found any virus.
Command prompt command given for removing the shortcut virus and showing all hidden files on the USB which starts with attrib. When I run the command I get the message could no find symbolic link to E:\photos. To which I then tried mklink which gave the error this device doesn't support symbolic links.
As a long shot I tried creating an image of the USB and then opening the image file and extracting the files. But all I get it errors when I try accessing the image file.
Even when I manage to look inside the photos folder using Delinv it shows as empty.
Oh and newly created files and folders can be seen fine.
This is a FAT32 sandisk USB. I forget the size because it's actually my sisters. Weirdly it showed up as a Local Disk when I put it in the computer.
If you can help I would be ever so grateful.
