HI, I have a single folder on a USB key I can't access because all the filenames have changed to gibberish. I get the error, "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect."
I've scanned the folder with bitdefender and it came up clean. I can't rename anything either. Even if I give it a single letter name, it gives the error, "The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name."
I'm running Windows 7 both at work and home, although I don't think that has anything to do with it. I've read that possibly it became corrupted due to a power outage or pulling the usb without safely removing hardware. If anyone has any idea how I might be able to salvage the data it would be greatly appreciated. I'm attaching a screenshot of how the files look now.
