I have a WD MyBook which has been creating empty folders with a long string of numbers and alphabets and some shorter ones with just some numbers with a 0kb file in it

Some of these can be deleted but some just stay put. It's irritating to find new ones everyday and now i have a collection of them which don't delete is there any way to delete these ?

Edit: I have scanned the drive using Antivirus and AntiMalware Software so i don't think it would have a virus


One solution is copying all the matter elsewhere and formatting the hard disk but there is not guarantee that these folders wont reappear.

Formatted the Hard Drive as there was no real solution after a long time.
