Remove Shortcut from Pen Drive

Posted: April 9, 2011 in Tips and Tricks, Windows

Click on “Start” –>Run –> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your pen drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command –> Right-click in the Command Prompt and paste it.

Note: Don’t forget to replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now press “Enter”.

Now check for your files and folder in Pen Drive.

    thx friend

  5. some little thing is missing ,, first scan and fix “flash/pen drive” with a good antivirus
    then open command prompt … and then enter the command “attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*”
    look you need to change the letter “g” with actual drive letter ; may be ‘h’ or ‘f’ or any thing else..

    remember type the command and then press enter. wait few second and then go… it will be fine :)

    Thanx for the steps. it really helped & i could able to retrieve my files. I also understand the comments of others. but i would like to say that, once u retrieve the files in pen drive, u will be having the short cuts as well as original files. You can move the original files to desktop & format the pen/flash drive to remove any virus. this way u are safe with your data as well as ur pen drive. Don’t get confused if u find both short cut icons as well as original files in ur pen drive once u follow the steps as stated. make sure to take backup of original files 7 format the pendrive.

    thanks.
