Try Maintenance>Virus Chest>right clicking>restore
If that does not work, is there any way to copy those files again. You might have to delete the contents on the USB drive then replace them.

The three alerts begs the question, wouldn't be safer to keep them in the chest and not transfer the detected files to someone else's machine let alone your own?  ???
