Recovering Folders converted to shortcuts by virus

There is nothing more annoying and frustrating than trying to copy files to a client’s computer using a usb drive and realizing that the clients computer has a virus and it has turned all your files into a shortcut. If you had important files and allow an antivirus to clean the usb drive, you may end up losing the files. This has happened to me on several ocassions and there are times I end up losing files.
