Usb shortcut
« on: May 21, 2023, 06:50:11 AM »
Recently a shortcut on my USB drive has appeared with the same name as the drive, my files have been hidden in the "\" folder that was hidden orignally. The shortcut itself has file location of cmd32.exe. I have tried formatting the drive but it reappears. What should I do to remove it?

Make use of a write protector.
