    I had important files on my pen drive, but when I tried reading it on my laptop, McAfee should lots of trojans and automatically they were removed.
    But my files are seem to be missing, specially folders.
    I had 900MB full in my 1GB pen drive. I need help on how to recover it, as it is still showing 900MB full, but the data cannot be seen. :confused:

    What type of files were they? What type of trojan did mcafee list them as?

    When I opened the Drive there where folders with a shortcut sign.
    In the folders I had Visual basics files. I did not really see the McAfee lists. But I guess the extension was .ico but not really sure.

    Open mcafee and go into the quarantine area and see what it lists them as. This may be a false positive. I would restore the items that are in the quarantine that came from the flash drive. Then use malwarebytes to scan them to see what it says.
