You could try reformatting it. Right click on the drive and choose 'format'. That'll lose you all the data on the drive, as I'm sure you know. I'd wait for other suggestions, though, before trying this one.

Thats how I would do it, if there is a virus I don't know another way. But you could save individual files after scanning.

What makes you think you have a virus?
Have you scanned and tried to get rid of your virus?
