We have to insert our pendrive (flash drive) at cyber cafes or other public places. So, it is almost impossible for us to ensure that systems we plug into are malware-free. As a result, we experience a recurring problem of our pendrives becoming infected.
One type of malware that has been a problem is a shortcut virus, which renders all my pendrive folders hidden. When I view the drive contents, I see nothing except a shortcut file. But my folders appear when I search.
How to solve this?
