Do you have a data backup of this transcend hard drive?
If not, I hope you could a lesson to back up all your important data at least on two hard drive or locations in the future.
But, now, in your case, you could firstly scan your computer with your installed antivirus tool so that you could wipe out the possible virus as soon as possible.
And then, for your contained data, you could take chances with some data recovery programs. There are many data recovery freeware that are designed to help the user retrieve his inaccessible data.
If you are suspicious, you could firstly give some drive data recovery freeware a shot, such as Recuva, TestDisk and iCare Data Recovery Free, etc.
Next time, never forget to scan your computer regularly.
I have a Transcend hard disk that is used as a backup drive. However, now, all the saved folders become shortcuts. When clicking these shortcuts, there is no any change. I still cannot open my files. It is really strange. Do you know what is going on? I am really not familiar with the computer problems. Please help me to access these contained folders and files again.
Thanks a lot!
