whenever I click on it, the connection to the computer disappears.
I think somehow clicking on this one file is triggering a disconnection of the USB drive from the computer. I have opened other text files on the drive with no problem.
I cannot open the file to check out its setting or characteristics because trying to open it triggers the disconnect.
I am not requesting malware scans at this time (unless that would solve the problem) especially because I am using Linux.
I would like advice on how to repair the file and find out how one file can alter the behavior of an entire drive.
Is this malware? If so, it would affect other files.
Is there a way to open the file in the linux version of safe mode?
