I had a virus attack which is preventing me from accessing all my data on both the computer and my backup drive. When I connect the drive, it still shows as having the files on it but when I open the drive it reads as empty. Can you please help with a solution.

You have to clean your machine first. Virus is hiding files. Try Trend Micro's Housecall

Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware and ComboFix are my drugs of choice. – user3463 May 3 '11 at 2:57
