How can I access data on an external drive after a virus turned folders into .LNK files?
Question by Davie /

Some of the folders on my external drive changed into .lnk files, pointing to “puibuu.src”. The memory details of my drive say that all data is still present on it, but I can’t access it.

For example the “photo” folder in my drive is now a shortcut to “puibuu.src”

What do I do to recover my data? Thanks.
